    Various shots of seagulls - some slow motion footage.

  • Description

    "When you, dear lady, stood on the seashore during that delightful holiday of yours - did you ever notice these -"

    C/U of seagulls on a beach. The birds are seen taking off in slow motion. Intertitle talks of the secrets that can be revealed by this method of filming. Another shot of the seagulls beginning to fly. L/S of the birds flying. Intertitle suggests: "Perhaps, when we learn more of aviation, we may yet have aeroplanes modelled on the graceful seagull." Flock of seagulls seen flying in slow motion.

    Was a Pathe Pictorial item.

    Note: it is interesting that this Pictorial item addresses the lady in the audience. This item predates the "Eve's Film Review" cinemagazine which was made specifically for the female audience. After Eve's Film Review was released, the Pictorial cinemagazine was seen as being more of interest to male viewers...
