  • Description

    No titles.

    This section belongs to PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD NO. 61 and has been prepped and transferred as a separate story. See separate record for other 'PEEPS' stories in this issue.

    Various shots of Indian men doing sacred dances in the holy temple grounds of the Indian city of Calcutta. It mostly involves spinning around with a slack neck, and tossing the head and hair this way and that. We also see musicians playing drums and people dancing about and chanting.

    Commentator says "Europeans are practically never allowed to see the sacred dances - but our cameraman was determined and got these unique pictures".
