I Am A Fugitive From A Sane Gang

1933 , Cambridge (Cambridgeshire)

A silent comedy by amateur filmmaker and cinema historian H.A.V. Bulleid.

On board the Cambridge Express, René Gade - 'Fresh from France' - travels to meet his cousin, a Cambridge don. To pass the journey, he gazes from the train window and puffs on his cigarette. Meanwhile, amidst the magnificent surrounds of King's College Cambridge, Gade's cousin - U. Wood, BA - is hard at work in the Old Lodge. Arriving at Cambridge, Gade disembarks from the train with a stumble. Later, with his car broken down on a country lane, Gade argues with the driver. A fiendish-looking passer-by offers to help, but steals the car. Nonplussed, Gade and the driver continue their journey on foot. Elsewhere, Archibald - the 'Archduke of Piffleheim' - is locked in an embrace with a young women, only to be startled by the appearance of Hecuba Brown, 'a pretty taking wench'. Succumbing to Brown's allure, he dumps his girl by pulling her leg (literally). Meanwhile, Gade and his driver spot a pair of young ladies walking down the lane. Following close behind, the pair make their move, grabbing a girl each and heading off in opposite directions.
