  • Short Summary

    Fun and games at an enormous outdoor swimming pool in Texas.

  • Description

    United States of America. "An easy matter in this huge Texas concrete swimming pool - with room for 2,500 bathers." Panning shot of a huge pool of swimmers. It is an open air pool. M/S of group of men diving off the side of the pool together, then swimming towards the camera. Lots of people sit on the steps beside the pool and watch. M/S of fun and games on a slippery pole which sticks out over the pool. Children fool around and fall in. C/U of three young children standing on the board. Another swimmer slides down the pole and falls in.

    High angle shot from the top of a slide. People slide down it on a wooden board. Fantastic spinning wheel thingy is shown. Half a dozen people propel it around with their hands and feet and four girls are spun around as they lie on the bottom. As the ones standing up lose their balance the girls get ducked in the water.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 627.

    I live in the town that this was filmed and this is the only film of the pool I have ever seen. Is there more footage of the pool on this reel?
