  • Description

    Full titles read: "Sports Ground at Sea - Huge deck of 'plane carrier "Lexington"' permits of 100 yds. race and a baseball field!"

    San Diego, California, United States of America.

    M/S of three men running in a 100 yards (?) race along the deck of the aircraft carrier 'Lexington'; sailors stand either side of the track, cheering them on. Various shots of the baseball field on the deck; a game is in progress and sailors stand watching (I wonder who dives into the sea to get the ball if it goes off the field?).

    Note: there are two alternative stories relating to this item: one is a duplicate of this story in a tinted yellow nitrate print, the other is a story with extra footage and new intertitles. Please see separate records for more details.
