Did You Know?


This film, as was common with similar newsreel-style documentaries of the period, contains no live sound whatsoever. Everything you hear consists of sound effects added in post-production, from crowd noise and traffic to every kick of the ball. Occasionally when someone on screen can be seen to shout something, gibberish approximating the mouth movements has been dubbed over. See more »
