  • Short Summary

    Good footage of Russian Black Sea Fleet, taken during their surrender.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Surrender of Russian Black Sea Fleet. (Exclusive pictures taken by our special War Correspondent, Mr George Ercole.)'.

    Some great film - dramatic shots. Tracking shot passing long warship; w/ British flag - Union Jack - many sailors stand on deck. Shot from one ship; w/ rope in fg; looking back across water toward 2 warships; much smoke coming from them; sun sparkles on water - this is very brief. Then another great shot - from ship with ropes in fg; looking at sea - ship is rocking but from this perspective it looks like the horizon itself is rocking back & forth. Makes one dizzy.

    Title 'Sebastopol.' Another shot like the last; looking from ship - lifeboat; deck in fg - at sea; which seems to rock wildly - feels like ship will roll over all the way! Cut to shot of ship passing by - in silhouette - w/ many men standing on deck.

    Also on ON 416 B.
