    Item title reads - Offered £4000 to turn "Pro". Remarkable pictures of Paavo Nurmi still shattering world records, in action. New York, USA (U.S.A.).

    M/S of Paavo taking off his jumper and handing it to another man. He pulls up his shorts and gets ready at the starting line then sets off. Various shots as he races along inside a gymnasium and through the finish line where men are timing him. This is repeated in slow motion. M/S of his legs as he stands around at the end, the camera pans up to his face.

    Note: there is another version of this item with the same title and footage which is tinted yellow. It is on *PM0378*.
