Out takes (rushes, cuts) for Le Mans Special.
Cuts (rushes, out takes) for "Le Mans Special "- they may relate to Colour Pictorial item called "Twenty-Four Hours at Le Mans" or a documentary called "Twenty-Four Hours to History" - see other records. Pathe seem to have shot enough footage to make both the documentary and the Pictorial item.
Filmed 15 and 16 June 1963.
Various shots of car crews checking car controls. C/Us of a driver and his wife (?). He chats to a man in a white hat. High angle shot of Ferraris (including Ferrari 250P) being worked on. C/Us of man with large quiff, Phil Hill chewing, and other men looking under the bonnet of a car. Various shots of men who are presumably car mechanics or something to do with the motor racing teams. Various shot of the cars and of the race. Group of young boys cluster around a driver seeking autographs. Shots of a man painting a number on the side of one of the cars. Shots of cars being worked on and drivers being interviewed. More shots of the race.
Some of the footage appears to be too fast - possibly filmed this way to give impression of high speed.
