    Comic swim in Serpentine. Hyde Park, London

    Line of men stand in diving position; on a pier in the Serpentine --some of them further out on a single plank. They are all wearing full set of clothes; including hats; though one or two are barefoot. They dive in. Shot of a few of the men swimming in the river; with man rowing a boat along. Another view; of a bunch of guys in the water; some still swimming in some sort of dog paddle; others are standing - water is chest-deep. CU old man in top hat; wet clothing; standing in water to his hips; then walking toward camera; out of water. Fairly bizarre & wacky.

    Comedy; silly sports; stunts.
