Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of a large toddler, Joseph Rundutza (sp?) of Gloucester, Massachusetts, United States of America. Commentator says he is three years old and weighs nearly eight stone. We see Joseph playing on a weighing machine / scale with another smaller boy. M/S of Joseph in a vest and shorts, wearing boxing gloves. This is quite a distasteful item, with a little fat boy paraded before us as some kind of freak.

    We then see various shots of two men making clogs out of blocks of wood. The finished clog shapes are seen being dried over a fire. Men carry baskets of clogs out into the snow. Children slide down a snowy slope in clogs. (Location of events unknown - could be Germany?) Note: parts of this story are out of synch - may need to be adjusted if used with track.

    In the United States of America we see a man being helped on with a bullet-proof vest. Another man fires several times at a dummy wearing the same. The man pulls some pieces of metal from the vest to show dents in them, caused by the bullets as they hit the vest and bounce off.
