  • Short Summary

    Major Segrave has a joyride in a fast speedboat.

  • Description

    "Some people like comfort and others like speed. These motor-boatists prefer the latter... (Incidentally, Major Segrave has a change from land)"

    High angle shot of three men in a very strange looking motor boat. Presumably Major Segrave is one of the three. L/S of the speedboat on the water. Camera follows the boat as it moves through the water. High angle shot of the boat passing under the camera. "Over 80 miles an hour is the official rate of progress on this 1000 H.P. speedboat, the world's fastest."

    Aerial shots of coastline and large municipal building on the sea front - not recognised by this cataloguer. Camera then picks up the speedboat and we see it moving through the water from the air.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number unknown.
