  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Missouri, United States of America, we see several shots of a limestone mine. A dynamite blast brings down a load of limestone; men are seen working on it.

    Various shots of a woman putting on lipstick in the street with the aid of a stencil. We are told the stencil matches the shape of her lips exactly (not quite, actually). I suppose it was designed so that you didn't need a mirror when putting on your lippy, but a mirror would be easier to carry. (Location of events unknown.)

    In New South Wales, Australia, we see members of a model aeroplane club starting up their petrol-driven planes. One young man sets off his plane while he rides along on the back of a motorbike; the plane soars into the air, then comes straight back down to earth with a crash, breaking in two!
