  • Short Summary

    Footage of large liner being launched.

  • Description

    Ocean liner launched .

    Boats and ships. Launching of a big ocean liner; ca. 1917. Cool shots looking up at ship's hull as it moves past to left. After it passes a wild looking shot of a bunch of poles sticking up - vertical but at slightly different angles; and some with small horizontal bars crossing; and a crane in BG. Weird shipyard stuff. Another shot of ship - or parts of it - CUs emphasise hugeness.
