  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Brief shots of a new 'road hammer' - a large buoy-shaped machine with handles like a lawnmower that belches steam and leaps up and down on the road to flatten it. (Location of events unknown - probably Germany).

    We then see a car being tested for road worthiness by driving it over steep sand dunes and hilly countryside. (Probably in Germany.)

    In the United States of America, we see a coat for bank staff to wear that is plugged into the general alarm system. When a man comes to the counter and tells the cashier to "Stick 'em up!", a gadget in the sleeves of the coat makes contact and causes the alarm bell to start ringing. (Last few seconds of story are missing.)
