  • Short Summary

    Cunard liner, Mauretania, is seen at sea.

  • Description

    Bravo Mauretania. The great Cunard ocean grey hound beats all records crossing from New York in 5 days, 1 hour, 4 minutes.

    Various point of view shots, taken from a smaller vessel, of the Mauretania, seagulls swoop around the bow. L/S of the enormous liner sailing away from the camera with smoke belching out of all four funnels. L/S of the liner with a smaller vessel moored next to it. M/S of the smaller vessel next to the liner. P.O.V. shot from a moving vessel of the liner with two smaller boats moored on either side - sea must be quite choppy as the picture moves around a lot.

    C/U of two ship's officers on deck. C/U of one of the officers - ship's captain? - pan to other officer. M/S of two officers standing outside the bridge, they are studying a map.

    Note: a shorter version of the story exists with titles - BRAVO MAURETANIA in G 1119. AH 2000.

    Note: for research purposes also use spelling - 'Mauritania'/ Mauritania.
