  • Short Summary

    Crazy car which has two bonnets and drives forwards and backwards with two drivers.

  • Description

    "It's an auto, folks.... has two bonnets, doesn't know its own mind and keeps everybody guessing..." M/S of a very weird car which can be driven either way. Two men climb in and it drives from right to left. The car then "reverses" (although it has two bonnets so which is forwards, which backwards?)

    Various funny shots of the car driving around in circles - a tram has to stop as they are in the way. "Try and dodge it ....if you can!" Man tries to cross the road - car nearly hits him. Car goes backwards and forwards. Short segment - incomplete.

    Was probably a Pathe Pictorial item - issue number unknown.
