Hints and Hobbies No. 8 1926

14 mins United Kingdom

Learn a grisly way to souse herrings with comedian Ernie Lotinga, or squat yourself skinny under the tutelage of a cigarette-smoking gym instructor, in this fun-packed edition of the popular, quirky 'Hints and Hobbies' film magazine series. Let mystic Carama guide you through the hidden meanings of a deck of cards and - in a real crowd-pleaser - teach the family dog to fight crime. Great fun.
