  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    United States of America.

    In Chicago we see several shots of men doing billiard tricks at a Professional Trick Shot Exhibition. A group of men sitting around the table watch and applaud.

    Several shots compare the modern protective clothing and helmets worn by American footballers with the gear worn some years earlier (no date is given, but I'd guess it is probably from the 1920s). The older outfit shows many protective pads on the outside of the clothing, whereas the pads are mostly on the inside of the new shirts and trousers. Commentator explains the two outfits, then we see the modern man without his shirt, showing the protective shoulder pads worn beneath it.
