    Nice ice dancing routine - high kicks and spins - some slow motion footage.

  • Description

    c 1920

    First intertitle reads: "Some folk believe they can make you feel cool.... even in the middle of the Sahara ... by icy views and stares. In this little film you provide the stares and we the view."

    L/S of woman in an elaborate outfit skating on a frozen lake surrounded by snow and trees. She wears a fur trimmed skirt - or possibly fringed - and large beret and scarf. We see her again skating in slow motion - her skirt lifts to show her bloomers. She then walks on tip toe in her ice skates and does some high kicks. Intertitle reads: "Isn't she charming? When she steps inside a tramcar - the advertising's a total loss." She skates in slow motion doing fancy turns. She walks on tip toe and does high kicks in slow motion.

    Was a Pathe Pictorial item.
