Liberty New York USA Date:1965, January 9 Duration:1 min 27 sec Sound:Yes
Skaters are seen circling the ice rink to gain speed, at Grossinger's Resort, in the Catskill Mountains, at Liberty, New York. They then attempt to leap over lines of barrels set on the ice, during the 14 annual barrel jumping competition. Contestants are seen clearing successively more barrels as they are added to the starting number of 11. Scene shifts to officials setting up a 16th barrel. Several fail to clear the 16 barrels, which is finally accomplished, again, by last year's winner, Ken Lebel of Lake Placid, New York. He is seen receiving the trophy from Mary Ann Mobley, television and screen personality, and former Miss America (1959).
