  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and / or locations may be unclear or unknown.

    Cuts / extra footage from 'Summing Up No. 12' (documentary).

    Berlin, Germany in June 1949.

    Several shots of people sitting around a table in a nightclub, drinking, smoking and chatting. People applaud a floorshow (unseen). A man sitting before a dressing room mirror puts on a funny hat and beard. Another puts on a feathered hat then beats his chest and shouts, Tarzan-style. (Club is 'Greifi Bar' in Berlin's main street, described by cameraman K Rickard in dope sheet as 'a pretty low-class dive'.)

    Several shots of neon signs in Berlin at night. High angle general views of city of Berlin - taken from top of Funkturm - Berlin's radio tower. Several shots of planes landing on airfield in daylight and at night. Some of the planes are 'Skymasters'.

    Aerial shots of Berlin.

    More footage of people drinking and having a good time in a Berlin nightclub. Barman washes glasses at a sink. A woman cashier (in nightclub?) is handed a ticket and makes a mark in a ledger. Several shots of two men and a woman wearing straw skirts over their usual clothes and feathered hats, doing a cabaret spot in a club. Seems to be quite a jaunty number.

    More shots of planes landing in daylight and dusk.

    Some of this footage shot during Berlin Blockade - not neon lights, as they weren't allowed during blockade. This is mute print; duplicate neg. version exists in UN 2156 A - see separate record.
