Abstract
Home movie of a winter sport & theatrics event at Chicago’s Soldier Field. Includes scenes of automobile theatrics, people skiing down a constructed ramp and ice skaters skating on an ice rink.
Description
The footage opens to Soldier Field; masses of people are portrayed in the stands and the Field Museum is pictured in the background-beyond the northern perimeter of the stadium.
The footage goes on to depict the variety of events occurring on the field: a man on stilts can be seen as well as skiers ascending and descending a steep slope. Close-up shots depict several lively members of the audience.
