    Kaye Don in America to try to for land speed record - shots of his car "Silver Bullet"

  • Description

    Flash Frame Full title reads: "British Driver Here To Seek Speed Crown. New York - Don Kaye will try to beat record set by countryman Major Segrave."

    New York, United States of America.

    M/S Kaye Don speaking to the camera.

    C/U Kaye Don. He takes off his hat.

    Intertitle reads: "Silver Bullet car he'll drive at Daytona Beach."

    Shot of the 'Silver Bullet' car. The writing on the side of this sleek vehicle reads: "Silver Bullet built by Sunbeam Motor Car Co Ltd, Wolverhampton, England."

    Different angle of the car The Union Jack flag of Britain and the Stars and Stripes flag of the USA are painted on the front. People are looking at the car (This crowd look rather English). More shots of the car.

    Intertitle reads: "It cost $200,000 and is expected to do 250 miles an hour."

    Kaye Don seated in the cockpit of his car. A sports car tows the Silver Bullet away.

    (It is not at all clear if this story actually belongs in this issue - The titles suggests this is actually a section from an American Pathe newsreel. Earlier in 1932 Kaye Don appeared to be planning water speed record attempts, not landspeed.)
