• Short Summary

    Nicely shot item about steelworks - more awe-inspiring than it sounds.

  • Description

    Titles read: "A symphony of steel - Perhaps the greatest industrial symphony - transforming great towns into seething cauldrons."

    United States of America.

    Various shots of steelworks beside a river - looks like New York and Hudson River.

    Intertitle: "Chimneys belching smoke and steam tell of the ceaseless labours below."

    Shots of steam rising out of chimneys.

    Intertitle: "In the unending drama of power, steel is born in this man-made inferno."

    Artistic shot inside a steelworks with sunlight streaming in through the windows. Shots of sparks flying during actual manufacture of steel.

    Note: music on soundtrack is 'Coronation March', making this quite a stirring and awe-inspiring film!
