  • Description

    "We sent our Scotch Cameraman to Switzerland to make a film, and told him not to waste any negative. He didn't" Montage of short shot showing scenes in Switzerland including snowy landscape, a town in snow, skiers, sleighs, ice-skaters, waiters carrying food in the open air (odd shot!), horse riding, sledging, bob sleighing, etc.

    "About this time, he must have got nervous, for he speeded Switzerland up still further..." Super fast montage of similar scenes. "Only when he saw the graceful riders of the air did he dally a little." High angle shots of crowds watching ski slopes. M/S of skiers on the slopes. Shot of ski jumper as he jumps away from the camera, then a reverse angle as he jumps towards the camera. Various shots of ski jumping competition.
