• Short Summary

    Very strong car tyres are demonstrated - then a device for practising golf indoors.

  • Description

    Narrator states: "Here's something new for the motorist". M/S of two men at the side of the road crouching beside a car. They are comparing two car tyres - one is much wider than the other. L/S of the two men as they lift and drop the tyres on the road - they bounce.

    L/S of car speeding past the camera. L/Ss of car being driven backwards and forwards over railway tracks.

    Funny shot of five men standing on and in a car rocking it backwards and forwards - presumably showing how tough the wheels are. C/U of the front of the car as it rocks.

    L/S of man driving a car down a steep hill. (may be a section missing here).

    Man stands beside a stand which supports a square of canvas that has a string running through it. It is a device for the home golfer. The man takes a swing at his ball which then hits the canvas. He walks towards the device and pulls the golf ball out again towards his tee.

    Story ends abruptly then goes straight into Lily Morris - I think that an intertitle is missing here.
