Does Your Wife Know?
A vicar gets railroaded on the cheap in this silent cinema ad for Southern Railways.
Documentary 1930 4 mins Silent
Does ‘er indoors know if you err outdoors? The indiscretion in this silent cinema ad, involving a vicar and a lanky brunette, is not a romantic one (sorry Fleabag). The guilty omission is in not informing his wife of the cheap-day return tickets to London that are on offer. The film also points out that any money saved would be well spent on tickets to the cinema!
