  • Description

    Fun and games at an outdoor skating rink in Switzerland. Couples sit back to back on sledges and propel themselves across the ice, it is a race. One couple wins it with ease. "The "dot and carry one" race is another little diversion." A kind of wheelbarrow race ensues with one girl lying down on the sledge with another pushing them across the ice. "And should life get too swiftish "skijoring" helps to slow Adam down (When our slow-camera gets to work)!" L/S of a man skating along pulling a woman on skis behind him. Another couple come into view - another race. L/S - short shot - of a horse race (intertitle missing here perhaps?)

    Main title appears here so perhaps this has been cut and incorrectly spliced together. "Always on the look-out for fun, a back-to-back race provides Eve with a humorous change from dancing." "The "dot and carry one" race is another little diversion." "And should life get too swiftish "skijoring" helps to slow Adam down (When our slow-camera gets to work)!" These intertitles are followed by more footage of the horse racing so there is obviously a bit of a mix up here.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 561.
