  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of showgirls in pierot costumes balancing on large rubber balls as part of a dance routine. They move about on the balls as we see some overhead Busby Berkley-style shots. (Location of events unknown - could be Germany?)

    Various shots of a woman in a leopard-skin coat carrying a baby panda towards a plane and sitting on the steps with it. She nuzzles her face in its fur, then looks like she kind of wished she hadn't! A more sympathetic looking woman is seen feeding the bear cub with a bottle of milk. Commentator says "Paula the panda is off to Chicago to meet her husband" and we see the aeroplane taking off. (Location of events is probably elsewhere in the United States of America.)

    At Miami Beach, Florida, United States of America, we see people playing a new game - it looks similar to volleyball but is played with a small object shaped like a little beanbag with some feathers sticking out of the top - some kind of weird shuttlecock. It looks like quite good fun.
