1934

Description

This is a short advertisement for Melbourne beer and includes a humorous commentary.

The film starts with some clips from a football match, possibly Bradford or Leeds, and is followed by a golf match.  As the narrator states that every sportsman has his ‘nineteenth hole’, the golfers make their way back into the pavilion as do various other types of sportsmen:  a footballer, a rugby player and cricketers. 

In the factory, empty beer bottles are cleaned on a conveyer belt before they come out the other end having been filled and capped.  The film then finishes with the company log overlaid with the slogan, ‘My Word “Melbourne!”’
