  • Description

    Cuts (out takes, rushes) for story in Colour Pictorial - CP 708. The original story is also on Pathe Master Tape *PM0451*.

    Cuts for story THE LAND OF FAIRY TALES in CP 708. Mostly similar footage to the cut story showing the sights and delights of Denmark; more footage of people having fun on the lakes. A different sequence shows a sculpture of a man (?) sleeping (or dead?!) with a night-cap on - could be something to do with Hans Christian Andersen? More shots in Odense and Legoland.

    Different shots of the Danish countryside, very green and lush. Various shots of boats in a harbour and sailing on the water; a fishing boat and a liner or ferry (seems to be called 'Winston Churchill') are seen going by. On a farm (?) a little boy sits on a tractor and pretends to drive it. Several shots of building work on two huge columns beside the water. In some kind of stage show before a large crowd, a girl contortionist bends backwards with a flower in her mouth; a couple do balancing tricks - she stands on her hands on the man's head.
