The Kiss in the Tunnel

A classic saucy sketch, a chance for canoodling in the carriage as the train hits a tunnel

Comedy 1899 1 mins Silent


The opportunistic kiss while a train goes through a tunnel and no-one can see was the subject of two films made around the same time. This one, by the Riley Brothers for Bamforth's, has a similar fictional scene to the G A Smith film but arguably improves on it with a more practical set. The two shots of the train going into and emerging from the tunnel are more distant, 'God's eye' views rather than the more immersive 'phantom ride' of Smith's version.
