Footage of fund raising auction for Red Cross.
Fund raising auction for Red Cross.
World War One - home front. Fund raising. Auction for Red Cross. Shot from behind audience; looking over the backs of men's hats at a line of men standing on a platform. CU George Robey; actor; and soldier holding up a piece of currency. Then he shows little statue of French police soldier to the crowd - he talks as he rotates the statue; showing all the details. Quite the sales speech. Then a shot of Robey in the crowd still talking.
