  • Short Summary

    Early car sun-roof demonstrated.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Here's a new development of the sunshine-saloon type of vehicle - the roller-blind car."

    C/U of the top of a car being put down. Hard to see at first what it is, but then we see the car revealed. C/U of man pressing the lever which will raise and lower the roof. We see the rolling roof in action. L/S of the car driving along with the roof up - just a little bit open like an early sun roof. The car pulls into the kerb.

    "Just press a lever and the car top opens or closes." We see the top open from a high angle looking down. The top is then closed. C/U of the lever being pressed. Shot from the interior of the car as the roof opens. C/U of the roof rolling down. C/U of the reflection in one of the car mirrors of the driver of the car and the roof being closed.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 667.
