  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    M/Ss of the exterior of a railway terminus at Moscow, Soviet Union. Inside, we see an area where children waiting for trains can take baths or go to sleep. There is also a nursery where the children can play with a huge range of toys.

    Still in the Soviet Republic we see cranes lowering complete sections of railway track onto the ground. A mobile workshop moves over the tracks almost as soon as they are laid.

    In Paterno, Italy, we see vast orchards where oranges, lemons, almonds and figs grow. Shots of snow-capped Mount Etna in the distance. People are seen picking oranges and putting them in baskets.

    In New York, United States of America, we see 8-year-old Shirley Foster skating around the Rockefeller Plaza ice rink. A large crowd of people watch as Shirley glides and pirouettes over the ice. She has Shirley Temple ringlets in her hair.
