  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In the Venetian Alps in Italy we see several shots of motorcyclists taking part in a trial up a very narrow and twisting road, tackling steep slopes, rugged roads and hairpin bends.

    In the Piedmont Alps in Italy we see various shots of skiers racing down ski slopes on a cross country ski race.

    In Miami, Florida, United States of America, we see great M/Ss of five massive streamlined American steam trains coming towards camera over the railway tracks. Several shots of aeroplanes flying over Miami leaving a steam vapour trail behind them and drawing shapes in the sky through acrobatics.
