  • Short Summary

    Girl skates on indoor ice rink, then speaks to camera (mute).

  • Description

    This is one of several stories found attached to 3rd reel of cuts for the documentary 'LURE OF THE EAST'. It may be the missing item SKATING CHAMPIONSHIP AT STOCKHOLM - 38/12.

    Titles read: "Stockholm".

    Various shots of two female ice-skaters performing on and indoor ice-rink before a large crowd. We then see a young woman sitting and talking to camera (mute) - presumably one of the skaters just seen. Could be Megan Taylor.

    This is the 1938 World Ladies Figure Skating Championship in Stockholm. It was a controversial decision where the first skater featured (which is Megan Taylor) beat Cecilia Colledge (the second skater). It is Cecilia who was interviewed at the end.
