  • Description

    Full title reads: "Elstree. The Hero of the 'Poseidon'. Chief Petty Officer Willis visits BIP Studios to see reconstruction of the drama in a sunken submarine."

    Elstree Studios, Boreham Wood, Hertfordshire.

    Shots of actors talking to Chief Petty Officer Willis. They are all standing waist deep in water in a reconstruction of the inside of a submarine. Pan to show one of the film cameras being used in the making of the film. Willis and an actor examine a simple piece of breathing apparatus.

    Willis stands out of water and talks - pan to actors in water.

    N.B. British International Pictures (BIP). The HMS Poseidon submarine sank of Hong Kong in June 1931.
