To see how a continuity script relates to film content, take a look at this clip from The Clodhopper, a 1917 film directed by Victor Scherzinger for Kay-Bee (a unit of the New York Motion Picture Corporation) and released by Triangle. In this scene, a country boy proves a surprise sensation at a New York cabaret with his eccentric dancing, including his signature "Clodhopper Glide."
