  • Short Summary

    Slow motion footage of a speed typist.

  • Description

    Intertitles are all spliced together at the beginning of this item. Images follow. "Have you ever watched a champion typist at work on the keyboard?" (shot missing) "Not only is his speed on the keyboard amazing, but changing the paper is a matter of a split second." (shot missing) "His wrists hardly move - it is pure finger work (Three inches separate the lines.)" Image material begins.

    C/U of a still image of a man's hands poised above a typewriter. Diagrams are superimposed over the photograph to show how his hand only moves three inches when he is typing. The still image begins to move in slow motion as he types. We see the typist make a carriage return in slow motion, and change his paper. Rest of shots are missing.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 613.

    Safety print exists.
