  • Description

    Full title reads: "Revival of wrestling. Huge crowds from all over the County - see grim and dour struggle in the 'Cornish style' championships".

    St. Austell, Cornwall.

    Various shots several pairs of men wrestling in a field watched by umpires and crowd. The men wear long johns or just their pants! Various shots of wrestlers (now fully dressed) posing for camera with trophy shields and cups.

    Cuts / out takes follow at 01:57:26. More shots of group of wrestlers posing with trophies. More shots of wrestlers leaving field. You can see why these shots weren't used in edited story - some of the wrestler's pants are very skimpy and revealing! Some shots of wrestlers being weighed. Otherwise cuts are identical to shots in edited story.
