Coves and Caves 1920

One of a series of short films featuring Cornish beauty spots. The style and content is reminiscent of Friese-Greene's subsequent odyssey, The Open Road - indeed, it could well have been the precursor of that journey. Shot in black and white, a collection of moving picture postcards are linked by quirky captions. Look out for an aerial shot of Trevose Head - commercial aerial photography was a relatively new development following on from the First World War. Padstow is a sleepy harbour, without a single fish restaurant in sight!
