  • Description

    Cuts (rushes, out takes) for story featured in Colour Pictorial - CP 664. The original story is also on Pathe Master tape *PM0425*.

    Cuts for story PRAGUE in CP 664. A few shots not seen in the cut story show rowing boats moored on the riverbank; people load their skis on the top of a coach.

    The following cuts seem to relate to CZECH SNOW SPORTS in CP 655 (original story on Pathe Master tape *PM0415*). Two clowns on skis in the snowy mountains at night drink from a bottle; one holds a flaming torch; they ski up to a hotel / lodge and brush the snow from their clothes and shoes. A man dressed as a wizard entertains a hotel crowd in fancy dress costume; he waves a 'Trick Stick' about (a stick with invisible thread attached, so it looks like it is moving independently of the user). Various shots of the guests in their costumes. The clowns enter the dining room and do some funny business involving one clown pulling a long tape from the other's trousers.

    Several shots show people using the ski-tow and walking up the ski slopes. Numerous shots of the snowy ski-slopes; people skiing down the slopes. Nice shots of tree branches laden with snow. M/S of the clowns and a line of people in fancy dress for the snow carnival.
