  • Description

    Soundtrack currently missing for this whole issue.

    Titles read: "CINEVIEWS IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In a bakery in Vienna, Austria, we see men rolling out balls of dough and plaiting them into Streechell (sp?) - a glazed bun with nuts and chocolate inside. A baker puts the bun into the oven, then takes out the cooked bun which is decorated with ribbon and fir leaves. M/S of a woman handing a Streechell to a little boy beside a Christmas tree.

    We then see the latest continental fashions, modelled by beautiful girls who sashay along a kind of catwalk to gaze at their glorious reflections in a mirror. A blonde wears a beautiful evening cloak and gown in silver lame, with a fox fur trim, then appears in a lovely white evening gown with simple lines and an ostrich feather fan and head dress. Lastly we see her in a smart, dark suit with a fox fur draped over the shoulder and round the waist.

    In Los Angeles, California, United States of America, we see a man hanging onto a very high tightrope stretched across a road between two buildings. He lies down on the rope as people stare from the pavement below. He then walks along the rope with a woman sitting on his shoulders - she looks pretty scared! C/U of the man's feet as he walks along; he tries to jiggle the rope as he steps on it. They finally reach the other building where photographers and cameramen are watching.
