  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "America isn't the only place where they have funny contests - in Central Europe they hold a cigarette rolling championship!"

    M/S of a large room where contestants sit at tables rolling cigarettes. Three women are seen in the foreground, other men and women sit behind them. C/U of two women preparing their cigarette papers and their "mull". Panning shot of men rolling, licking their papers etc.

    C/U of man deep in concentration stuffing tobacco into a rolled piece of paper. He does something wrong and looks very exasperated (this looks staged). He wipes the sweat from his brow. He grabs a large handful of tobacco and tries to cram it all into a paper. Story incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 639.
