  • Description

    Titles read: "CINEVIEWS IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Kippen, Stirlingshire in Scotland, we see people looking at a huge grapevine in a glasshouse. It is 300 feet long and is nearly 50 years old. A man and woman are seen picking bunches of grapes. A young girl with plaits eats a grape from a bunch.

    Various shots of the latest fashions in ladies night-gowns in satin and lace - beautiful! (Location unknown - could be United States of America.)

    In the Southern Tyrol (Austria? Italy?) we see people travelling to the skiing ground on a large sledge with benches on it. The people get off at the top of a slope and ski down to the bottom.

    In the United States of America we see a woman blacksmith, Mrs Martha Smith, shoeing a horse in her workshop. Commentator wonders if she has ever been hurt shoeing a horse. C/U of Mrs Smith as she says "No, I've been kicked a couple of times, but I never was hurt."
