    Unused / unissued material -

    Early Italian comedy - The Runaway Globe. Lots of special effects and slapstick too.

    Accidents happen in a sculptor's studio. Workmen deliver a large globe for placing as decoration on top of the globe restaurant, they manoeuvre the glove onto the roof with great difficulty, then drop it, it crashes through all the floors of the building and runs away down the street chased by an ever increasing number of people, eventually the sun - with a human face - sucks up the runaway globe which enters the sun's eye and is spat out again from the sun's mouth to land back beside the restaurant.
