  • Short Summary

    Fencing demonstration - the duellists are A.H. Corble and Professor F.G. McPherson.

  • Description

    Title continues: "A Sabre duel between Mr A.H. Corble (Am. Champ. 1922) and Prof. F.G. McPherson (Finalist, World's Prof. Champ.) whose recent demonstration at the London Club was so successful."

    Two men stand in a garden and demonstrate the difference between using a sabre and using a foil in M/S. They put on their masks and duel. Slow motion filming shows the skill involved. Footage of the men fighting from a closer angle. Shot from another angle seems to be speeded up slightly. More slow motion footage of their practice. The two finish their duel and take off their helmets. They shake hands.

    Was originally an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 276.
