Swedish invention in the traffic field
Week number 44-24
Newsreels in which Dutch subjects of a certain week are presented.
A Swedish constructor designs a large aerodynamically shaped catamaran for transatlantic passenger transport, driven by airplane propellers. He shows a wooden scale model. During a test run with a small model a high speed is achieved.
During World War II the newsreels by film producers Polygoon and Profilti were controlled by the German occupiers. Polygoon and Profilti had to work together with the German film rental office Tobis. From January 1, 1941 the newsreels were therefore called Tobis News. Until the fall of 1944 newsreels under this name were produced alternately by Polygoon and Profilti.
