  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Arizona, United States of America, we see various shots of an invasion of grasshoppers crawling over arid land. A farmer sprays them with Naphthalene from a trailer pulled by a car, then runs his hands through a sack of dead 'hoppers' - yeuch!

    In Johannesburg, South Africa, we see several shots of a bulldog called Hardy (after the famous warship) who was sold at a Naval charity auction for 2,000 guineas. The pup romps with his new boy owner and poses in a sailor hat.
