Great footage of the Mount Rushmoor National Memorial taking shape.
Titles read: "Immortals in stone. Almost rivals of the Sphinx in conception - enduring monuments carved out of the mountain itself."
South Dakota, United States of America.
Various shots show the Mount Rushmoor National Memorial - the faces of US Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt - taking shape. Dynamite blasts away sections of the rock. Men hanging from harnesses on the side of the mountain drill rods into the stone.
Sculptor Gutzon Borglum and his son hang from bosun chairs over Washington's nose and check the carving is in proportion. L/S of the partly finished monument.
