• Short Summary

    Wrestling competition in Switzerland.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "SWISS WRESTLERS ! - Just as the country goes up and down, so the Swiss have real up and down wrestling. They start with a little yodelling choir."

    L/S of men of the yodelling choir stand around a table in a large field and sing. Large crowds of people can be seen watching the wrestling contests in the background.

    Intertitle reads: "Completely oblivious of the music (or is it because of it ?) panting wrestlers are fighting out affairs using large lumps of scenery en route."

    Several M/S's of two wrestlers fighting in a circular arena made of sand, there is plenty holding and groping! M/S of women in the crowd looking quite concerned at the aggressive nature of the sport. L/S of the choir yodelling mixed with more footage of the wrestling contest."
