  • Short Summary

    Snow scenes in England and ships frozen in the Great Lakes in America.

  • Description

    Item title reads: " Like An Old Fashioned Christmas Card. Town and countryside everywhere enshrouded in Winter's beautiful but icy mantle! They are deeper in King Winter's icy grip on the Great Lakes in America."

    England and United States of America (USA).

    M/S of a boy walking on his way to school, on a snowy day. There is a fence behind and a town in a valley below and beyond with snow topped roofs. M/S of an urban street with people outside sweeping their bit of pavement with brooms to keep it clear of snow. There's community spirit. No gritting lorries here. A man walks along the street, away from camera. M/S deer under the trees in a park, looking picturesque in the snow.

    M/S ice bound ships with their funnels smoking. There are aerial shots. An ice breaker ship moves forward and there are shots from ship to ship. The camera pans across three or four large ships all stuck quite close together in the pack ice. Point of view shots from the tug. C/U of steaming water pouring from one vessel.

    Note: Picturesque snow and stunning shots of ships in ice. See also *PM0710* 710.22 for additional sequence of ships in ice.
