‘Tell your fortune, Lady? from the British Pathe Studio, London.
Tell your fortune, Lady? from the British Pathé Studio, London, starts with a shot of a woman’s hands, shuffling a deck of cards. The scene is set with a lady dressed in gypsy type clothing sat with two other women who are shuffling their decks of cards.
We are shown a quick sequence of frames, showing the different suits of the playing cards and what they actually represent.
Spades, of course, means trouble – and this is illustrated with a spade shaped frame, showing the two woman arguing
Diamonds represent wealth so in the diamond frame we see a lady in fine clothes trying on different jewellery.
Clubs represent business and work matters, so in the Club Frame we see a lady sat at her typewriter.
Hearts, obviously, relate to love and relationships and in the heart frame we see a man kissing a woman.
After, we see the individual cards and what they signify; Jack of Hearts is a lover, the King of Clubs is a business associate. When it refers to the actual pip numbers, it gives the example of 2 meaning surprise, 3 meaning delays, 5 meaning strife and finally 9 to represent “a journey”.
As we return to the table, one of the ladies proclaims that she “knows all about it” and offers to do a card reading for the lady dressed as a gypsy. She deals the cards and then makes the prediction that she is going on a long journey with a most dangerous man. Suddenly, we see a policeman fade in, just behind her, telling her to get her hat as she is now going on that long journey!
