• Short Summary

    The Futurama model of the cities of the future and girls doing exercises on apparatus.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of the huge Futurama model of the cities and roads of the future that was built for the New York World's Fair. The model is being re-exhibited and we see numerous shots of tiny cars moving along the highways on their way into the towns. (Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.)

    At a 'continental' school (probably Italy) we see young women doing exercises on mats and on various pieces of apparatus, to develop a sense of balance as well as grace, strength and poise. Brief shots of the girls doing formation exercises with clubs.
