  • Description

    THIS DIGIBETA VERSION HAS BEEN MADE FROM THE PRINT - VERSION ON TAPE *PM1178* WILL PROBABLY BE BETTER QUALITY AS TAKEN FROM THE NEGATIVE.

    United States of America. Introductory intertitle reads: "Here's a Texas young lady whose skill with a rope rivals her brothers."

    L/S of a woman riding a horse towards the camera with her two brothers bringing up the rear. They are in a prairie landscape. The woman twirls a lasso as she rides along. L/S of the woman, now standing on the ground whipping the lasso around. One of the brothers rides towards her and she lassos his steed!

    "How's this - for a girl?" The chick does some stunts with the lasso. She stands inside the circle of rope spinning it around her body, she then lies down still lassoing, then stands up again - without getting in a tangle. Film ends with a C/U of the girl standing with her horse. She is quite a glamour puss.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue number 449.

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.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
