  • 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.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
