CYPRESS GARDENS- 25 YEARS

Date
1960 (circa)
Description
This film has a mixture of scenes shot over 25 years (until the early 1960s) at Cypress Gardens. It starts with a short comedy sequence. Then, American Indians dance around a group of ski stars on land and a skier greets a group of American Indians on a beach. Dick Pope drives a golf ball global around the property and goes from shot to shot driving a 1957 Continental pulling a trailer with his golf cart in it. Pope poses with Victor Borge. There is a synchronized swimming sequence, a segment that shows clowns skiing and footage of children jumping rope. Viewers also see the parking lot, ski show shots, hula-hooping Hawaiians, Hawaiians learning to ski, beauty queens and conquistadors parading and posing, a skier and a model in a boat, and Dick Pope playing piano on a raft towed behind a boat as a skier performs to his music. Produced and sponsored by Cypress Gardens.
