"Ski Chase" Combines Breath-taking Feats of Hannes Sohnelder with Beautiful Photography

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Once in a great while a picture is photographed with breath-taking originality. Subordinating plot and characterization it unrolls before an untiring audience, which never coases to admire the ingenious technique, artistic angles, and gradations in color of black and white film. Such a picture is "The Ski Chase," featuring the excellent ski-ability of Hannes Schnoider. Laid in the spacious snow-doopened mountains of the Austrian Tyrol, this German production given an unusual and varied conception of the winter sport. We don't know a terrible lot about skiing, but the feats and perfection of the fifty or more skiers looked pretty good. Man and snow make a beautiful combination anyway, and when skis are added, there is abundance of action.

A shadow of a plot helps to keep up the interest. The great Hannes and his new protege are made the "foos" in a hunt on skis. Distinguished by caps, the two set out on the trail. Soon a made chase ensues, and it is this that fills the body of the picture. Much comedy is afforded by a dwarf and giant pair, whose antics on skis are similar to those in last year's "Slalom."

On the stage a fashion show of ski clothes was successfully spoiled by a certain boisterous group who apparently objected to the effemination of skiing by fashion dictates. In keeping with the main feature was an exciting Mickey Mouse called "On Ice." A short on the sports in which the women of today indulge included a disgusting bit on female pugilists.
