Robert Bonine shot this one and it's a bog standard and mostly uninteresting effort. There is a sense of constriction in this piece, caused by the lack of movement by anyone. Instead, the movement is all rhythmic and surging and leads no where. There is no sense of progress as things end pretty much where they began.
Audiences were losing their patience with actualities by this point. Story films were becoming more important for a sense of emotional movement, if not physical movement. It would take another half dozen years, until Pathe came up with the idea of a newsreel, a mini-program of actualities.
