Early Hepworth comedy film - That Fatal Sneeze.
Dir: Lewin Fitzhamon.
Boy pours sneezing powder on old man's handkerchief and other articles while the man sleeps. The old man gets up, dresses, blows his nose and starts sneezing. His sneezes wreck the bedroom and in the street (followed by the boy) he wrecks shops and houses with his sneezing which causes an ever increasing number of people to chase him, he eventually vanishes in a puff of smoke after a violent sneeze.
Cataloguer's Note: Great piece of early cinema - lots of gags and special filming effects - MD.
