SURFING FILM. - Scenic Australia. Surfing - Australian Style.

Norman S. Little, Sydney [c1960?]. 8mm colour film on reel in original colour printed box, 77x77mm. Apparently in excellent shape with the original lead-in title at the beginning of the film intact. ¶ Some two to two and a half minutes of maybe otherwise lost surf footage - "from an entirely new angle" - presuming it runs at 24 frames per second. This may seem short but let me assure you that unless you are a totally stoned fan of Taman Shud it's plenty. The Norman S. Little Scenic Film Division, of Erskine Street Sydney, obviously made films designed for producers of newsreels, travelogues, documentaries and the like. They list fourteen other titles on the back of the box, mostly of life and landscape in and around Sydney, and promise interstate and Pacific Island films to come. That the name would remain unknown to the public is simple enough but I can't find any record of Norman S. Little and his films anywhere. He seems unknown to the National Film and Sound Archives, and everywhere else I can think to look.
