  • Description

    Out takes (cuts, rushes) for THE CHANNEL CONQUERED AGAIN in G 1324 and WELL DONE MOTHER in G 1325. The original stories are also on Pathe Master tape *PM0630*.

    M/S of a rowing boat in harbour. Amongst the people on board is Mrs. Corson - she stands up and signals to camera. People in rowing boat climb aboard larger motor launch. L/S of Mrs. C. swimming, in foreground man on boat shouts through megaphone. We see Mrs. C. treading water while she accepts food from her support team.

    M/S of Mrs. C. sitting behind a desk, her support team surround her. They are singing - 'For She's a Jolly Good Fellow', perhaps? C/U of a telegram sent to Mrs. C. Says something like; 'my heartiest congratulations' and is from another American Cross-Channel swimmer, Gertrude Ederle (see GIRL CONQUERS THE CHANNEL, G 1318). Good C/Us of Mrs. C. playing with a mascot doll, she seems very light hearted and laughs a lot.

    Various shots of another Cross-Channel American swimmer, Clarabelle Barrett. Shots are same or similar to those used in other Gazette stories. See records for GIRL'S GREAT CHANNEL SWIM in G 1317 and THE CHANNEL WINS in G 1323.

    Shots otherwise same or similar to those in original stories - see separate records for details.
