    L/S of motor car speeding round circuit as it corners a stuntman jumps out of the passenger seat. M/Ss of stuntmen fighting in moving car. L/S of man jumping out of a tree onto two men below. A mass brawl ensues. Several shots of more fighting. M/S camera pans from right to left as numerous bare chested stuntmen stand in line looking suitably tough. The commentator says "Yes it's all done by kindness. And here they are the toughest bunch of guys this side of Chicago."

    Cataloguer's note: The commentator also mentions that the school is run by ex-British lightweight champion wrestler Mickey Wood and Dave Cowley, ex-British lightweight boxing champion. They perhaps appear in the film.
