CONTENDER - BERNARR M'FADDEN [sic] IN AIR RACE AT 70 (aka SPEED AIRMAN AT 70) (LNER)
Titles read: "CONTENDER - BERNARR M'FADDEN [sic] IN AIR RACE AT 70". <br/> <br/>United States of America. <br/> <br/>Various shots of 70-year-old Bernarr MacFaddern, publisher and physical culture advocate, standing beside his aeroplane. Commentator tells us he is entering the Bendix Transcontinental Speed Race(s?). MacFadden says he believes life begins at 70, and by entering this race he is demonstrating this. He jumps into his plane (that once established speed records for Howard Hughes) and takes off. <br/> <br/>Note: spelling of name on side of plane looks like MacFaddern, not MacFadden.
