  • Description

    Titles read: "The super cat. Just like the one out of the Fairy Tales - but it's Ally Alberta."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of a human (not sure if male or female) in a hairy cat costume, popping a balloon, doing some strange contortionist moves and what is recognisable today as break dancing! When the music changes to 'Goodnight Sweetheart', the 'cat' puts on a little bonnet and gown and walks off. Weird!

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.
