  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At the New York World's Fair, United States of America, we see several shots of a huge and detailed model train exhibit, reproducing well-known sections of the railway lines running throughout the country. Interesting final shot shows men emerging from behind the mountains and lakes in the exhibits to do maintenance work on the exhibit.

    Also at the New York World's Fair, we see a trapeze artist travelling from one side of the fair to another along a rope across a lake. She starts her journey from a high tower and hangs from the rope by her teeth - amazing! C/U of the girl smiling after her trip - all her teeth are still there.
