• Short Summary

    A clock tower at Messina in Italy with life-size golden figures strikes the hour.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Just a clock - but what a clock! Come with us now to Messina, where the famous Bell Tower houses its complicated clock... with life-size moving figures and queer noise effects - ".

    Messina, Sicily in Italy.

    Various shots of an ornate bell tower in Messina. A golden cockerel crows and golden figures of humans, skeletons and lions move when the clock strikes. A strange siren sound comes out of the tower (perhaps it is meant to be the lion roaring).
