Movietone Films Medium's Trance

Lady Conan Doyle attends dramatic demonstration by Mrs. Meurig Morris.

Editor's note: For the first time in the history of sound motion pictures, British Movietone News has been able to record a séance. You will notice that during this unique film the microphones crashed to the ground, the medium remaining oblivious to the danger of this occurrence.

« Brothers, we have met today, to give the true meaning, of this co-operation of the two of us. It is not a matter of faith, but of fact, it is not only a matter of belief, but it is of knowledge. Many may wonder, of the true purpose of this co-operation, but it is, when through the knowledge of the continuity of life, man himself, knowing of his true and rightful heritage, shall work for the good of humanity. Man's inhumanity to man will cease. There must be the abolition of war, there must be that love and friendliness with all nations. In the time that is to come, national life must cease. There must be that which men in that one great family, a true brotherhood. If this is only assured, and men will seek for that great knowledge, they shall receive the greater fruit from that search, and therefore find, that unending joy, which is the gift of the spirit. For in the true spirit shall men see with a clearer vision, the true light of eternal life. Amen. »
