• Short Summary

    Captain Olsson's group of exercising children put on a display in Newton Park, Bath.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'SPRITELY and MERRY - Pathe Pictorial presents - CAPTAIN OLSSON'S FAMOUS MERRY SPRITES'.

    Bath.

    Various shots of a group of children in white shorts and vests putting on a display of exercises in the grounds of Newton Park. Shot of geese walking across the grass - the children crouch in a line and mimic the birds.

    Slow motion shots show the children jumping from a box into the air and landing in Captain Olsson's arms. The group of children make their exit by doing forward rolls through a small door of an old building in the park. The door closes behind them.

    (Pathe Pictorial end titles are superimposed over final shot.)
