    Soviet ship picks up supplies in Australia and we get see the mixed crew and quarters on board.

  • Description

    Titles read: "ABOARD A SOVIET SHIP".

    Australia.

    M/S of Soviet flag being hoisted on ship. Several shots of wool and other supplies being loaded onto Russia-bound ships at an Australian port. Various shots of the members of the crew of the ship, including some women.

    We see the women's feminine-looking quarters with frilly curtains and cushions and shots of the mixed crew sitting about in a rest room and playing chess. Some stand around a piano while someone plays a patriotic song. A man looks through a porthole and sings along.
