  • Description

    Film made by British Pathé to accompany the Pink Floyd track "The Scarecrow". Music track is copyright the rights holders.

    Note: Upon licensing this footage, master material will be delivered mute.

    At an unidentified countryside location we see various shots of members of pop group Pink Floyd wandering through cornfields, looking at scarecrows and swapping hats with them, while a song from their latest LP plays on the soundtrack (they do not mime). The band members seen are Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Syd Barratt and Richard Wright.

    The group sit in trees, lie on the grass, pick up a scarecrow from a field and stick it in the middle of a swampy pond before a row of village houses. A bizarre bit of horseplay between Nick Mason and Roger Waters involves them pretending to have a shoot-out in slow motion; Roger 'shoots' Nick in the hand, he reacts and manages to shoot Roger who falls down dead. What crazy psychedelic kids they were!
