• Short Summary

    Arthur Haylock eats razor blades, flowers, a light bulb and a bowler hat.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'THAT RAZOR BLADE PROBLEM! Solved by ARTHUR HAYLOCK'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    A man is seen sitting down at a breakfast table, reading a newspaper. A young man in a leather jacket, 24-year-old Arthur Haylock, sits down opposite him. C/U of a newspaper article about Arthur with a headline that reads "Old Razor Blades? He Just Eats Them".

    We then see some gruesome footage of Arthur eating razor blades, crunching them up in his mouth after a liberal sprinkling of salt! Then he eats the flowers that are sitting in a vase on the table. The other man gives Arthur some funny looks - he is eating toast. Next, Arthur takes the light bulb out of the lamp above the table, breaks it and eats some of the glass near the bottom - yeuch! He washes it down with some water.

    Lastly, he gets up, takes a bowler hat off a peg behind the newspaper man and bites into it. The other man springs up, saying "Blimey, that's my hat!" and takes a bite of it himself!
