Testing army cars.
Location of events unknown.
Automobiles. Army does motorcar tests. Kind of a strange film. First shot of car approaching on a country road at quite a speed for the time; while two men squat at the side on a small bridge; to watch the car going over the bump in the road. Another man is barely visible on the other side. Two more cars follow quickly. Next; CU of two men looking at engine of a car; making comments; pointing at things; etc. GV curve in wet country road. Through some editorial accident; it turns into a trick film: there's a flash of light; and a man appears standing in the field near the curve! Car drives around the curve where there is a big puddle; and splashes the man; who turns away and bends forward. Another car follows; another splash; the man reacts in the same way. CU two men get out of car; open up the bonnet and start to look at the motor (this is the beginning of the earlier scene). Then another trial on the bridge: man watches as two cars drive over--he squats as they go by; then pops back up.
