    United States of America: beauty parade with a focus on backs.

    A group of girls stand in a circle with arms around waists. They bow into the middle of the circle. Two lines of women bend sideways towards each other while several male "judges" in white coats look on. They walk down the centre of the two lines and are at liberty to stroke any back they like the look of! A group of four cameramen are filming the event. The women wear bathing suits and do "twirls" for the judges. Two women collect prize cups then turn away from the camera to show the winning backs.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 381.

    Safety print only.

    Note: very nice stuff - unfortunately some decomposition damage.
