This film shows the features of Silver Springs. It includes "actors" who are supposed to be filming an old-time slapstick comedy with pie-in-the-face scenes. It shows the glass-bottom boats on the river, the view through the boat glass and scenes of underwater filming. A "symphony" tune is played during various beauty shots. Viewers see the jungle cruise boats. Seminoles and children pose for photos, as does a chimp wearing a feather headdress, smoking a pipe and holding an American flag. Antique cars and a championship Chrysler stock car are seen. Produced by Guided Tours.
