  • Description

    Eve's Film Review visits Billy Merson at his home.

    "Golf's one of my hobbies," said Billy as he trained to take it out of Colonel Bogey." M/S of Billy dressed in white and smoking taking shots against a practice net. "But the river's my chief attraction - anything with water in it always fascinates me ---" L/S of Billy and a female friend walking down the steps of a cute house on a riverbank. They are followed by two friends and when they get to the river's edge they wave at someone off screen. "Exercise? Why bless us we live on it ---" Shots of Billy and his friends jumping and diving off a board in their garden into the river. There is also a slide which everyone has a go on. C/U of Billy splashing around with his children (?) in the river. C/U of Billy in a cosy cardigan having a small sherry. He toasts the camera. End title reads: "And the same to you."

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably to be found in the "Stars as They Are" roll.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
