Strange car is demonstrated - it appears to have no driver.
Story of an American invention. A car that is driven by human will power.
"It meets its owner at business - then spins dutifully home." Man walks down the steps of a building. A car approaches - there is no-one driving. Name painted on the side is "Speed Spook." Man gets into the car and steers it. L/S of car approaching the camera down a long drive. Two men climb out. They wave at the car and it reverses by itself, turns around and drives away. "It looks like a cheap way to solve the chauffeur problem."
L/S of car driving along followed by two others. L/S of car driving down a country track. M/S of the car driving along a busy street - policeman directs traffic. "pinched!" - (We knew there was a catch in it.)" reads the intertitle. Policeman on a motorcycle stops the car. He lifts up the bonnet and a man climbs out - smiling.
Good, silly, quirky stuff. Large scratch on picture unfortunately.
