    Stencil colour material - scenic shots of American landscape, mountains and waterfalls.

  • Description

    Pathecolor (sic) item - early stencil colour.

    L/S of a countryside scene. A river flows towards the camera, mountainous landscape in the background. High angle shot of a woman and child walking across a primitive wooden bridge which passes over the river. "High in the mountain pastures runs the quiet brook..." Low angle shot showing river passing over rocks, very tall bridge seen in the background. Various other scenic shots in this mountainous landscape. Bridges, streams, forest. "The brooklet finds its way downwards, gathering strength as it follows the valley pathways..."

    L/S of a waterfall. "Where no foot could go, the stream goes on - over rocky courses and tumbling often in falls..." High angle shot of water cascading over rocks. M/S of large amount of water tumbling over rocks. "And so it winds its way to the lowlands; now a broad river, flowing evenly toward the sea..." High angle of a valley landscape with large river running through it. Another view of the landscape.

    "Pathé Distributors" logo at the end of this item.

    Note: This is an American Pathe Review item, hence spelling of colour in title. Nice subtle colouring of American scenic shots.
