  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "No longer is Eve content to be a passenger. She must take the wheel now, whether on a fast motor boat..." Various shots follow of a woman steering a boat through choppy waters. It is rather a large boat.

    "...or a racing car around Brooklands. Various shots of a woman with male passenger driving around the track at Brooklands. Woman is not identified (doesn't look like Ivy Cummins). "She is just at much at home on a dirt track motorcycle." Two women push a motorcycle towards the camera. We then see woman speeding around a dirt track on the bike. (Think this is the same woman as featured in "Mechanical Maids").

    "Give her the wheel on the road and she can take rough hills - " Story ends here. Last shot missing.

    This is one of the NFTVA prints made from our decomposing nitrate.
