    Cuts / out takes from various stories from 1925.

  • Description

    From original issue sheet (no titles exist): "With this issue, the Pathe Super Gazette celebrates its first anniversary, and thanks to the support of the Owners and Patrons of this Cinema, it has been able to give, in each Edition, longer and more interesting pictures than hitherto possible of events of National and World Interest in any News-Film. The Pathe Super Gazette looks forward fortified by such support - to be able to do even better in the coming year. No expense will be spared - and every endeavour will be made to achieve further successes".

    Appears to be cuts / out takes from Pathe Gazette stories from 1925 which appear to be used in 1926 as a review item about the previous year. They are not edited in any particular order.

    L/S of battlefield - see FRENCH OFFENSIVE LAUNCHED in G 1195. C/U of pilot from AM ALL RIGHT in G 1200. M/S of Queen Mary and King George V walking along a red carpet from CANADA'S HOME IN ENGLAND in G 1203. L/S of a crowd on the far bank of a rapid river, some people use stepping stones to cross the water - unable to identify which 1925 issue this is from at present.

    M/S of an old fashioned train with people in period costume on it from RAILWAY CENTENARY in G 1204. Unidentified shots of an helicopter, original issue sheet refers to a 'rotor ship' story from February, 1925 - could be that?
