Summary
Pathe synopsis: At a time when fission and fusion explosions are commonplace, it is a pleasant change to meet Hungarian chemist Charles Bene, who has created a peaceful impact of his own. He has perfected a method of "dyeing" materials without using dyes - the secret being a straightforward chemical reaction. Another new process is printing patterns on to photo-sensitised cloth, with a powerful light "developing" the cloth. Here is one magician with plenty up his sleeve.
