  • Short Summary

    A couple ski along a snowy slope pulled by an aeroplane.

  • Description

    Film begins by quoting the old saying: "Hitch your wagon to a star." "But if, instead, you've only 'skis' try hitching on to this..."

    A young woman is helped into the cockpit of a plane. The plane taxis along a snowy plain pulling a man and woman on skis behind it. Spectators watch as they ski past. M/S of a biplane pulling along a man on a kind of boogie board - a large ski for two feet. Birds eye view of the man being pulled along by the aircraft. "Who said "Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep?" asks an intertitle. Strange turning camera shots of two people on a large ski being pulled by a boat or plane.

    Was originally an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 258.
