About this e-video

Description

This film is subtitled 'Being the lighter side of the International Physiological Congress, Zurich'. The film starts with a sheaf of paperwork being studied prior to the conference with the intertitle 'The Temptation to Go' and follows the decision to attend with the journey to Switzerland by plane. It turns out that the 'auditorium' is the hotel swimming pool packed with swimmers. The conference attendees (who are never seen actually at the conference) are seen relaxing and socialising. They have an excursion to Rapperswill; a group of researchers are described as 'Happy Hampstead', there is a sequence with Thomas Mann, other groups of unidentified conference attendees and then souvenirs which are beer mats.
