  • Description

    Titles read: "Now another kind of daredevilry - on land - Auto Thrills! To be exact, Auto-polo, Chicago variety -".

    Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.

    Various shots of an 'Auto-polo' match in a Chicago sports stadium. Two buggy-type cars zoom about a dirt pitch and the passengers hit the ball with polo sticks as they pass. Spectators crowd around the pitch and run out of the way as the cars pass. Commentator says the object of the game is to get your opponent out of the running. After a collision, one of the cars turns over.

    We then see a man on a motorcycle drive straight through two burning wooden boards, for the thrill of the crowd! He comes straight out the other side, apparently safe.
