Star Item
  • Description

    Broxbourne, Herefordshire.

    L/S of a typical Dutch house with a nice lawn and tulips in front of it. M/S of the house - a woman and a little girl, dressed in traditional Dutch costumes and clogs are walking out of the house and across the loan. M/S of the woman and the little girl walking slowly towards a Windmill. Lovely tilting shot of the windmill surrounded with flowers.

    This is Dutch bulb farm in Broxbourne, Herefordshire owned by Mr Van Hage. "Because of the obvious link with London's Windmill Theatre, Mr Van Hage invited dancer Mickie Allen to inspect the farm - needless to say suitably attired for the occasion." Mr Van Hage's daughter Mary Anne is there to show her around.

    M/S of Ms Allen and Mary Anne looking at the flowers. C/U shot of their faces as they watch the flowers. L/S of the two photographers taking photos of Ms Allen and Mary Anne. M/S of the photographers taking photos. M/S of Ms Allen and Mary Anne posing - while Ms Allen smiles, the poor girl looks scared and not very happy with the situation.

    Note: The paperwork states that length of this item is 93 feet but here is a serious discrepancy between length and time codes, which indicates that the item is at least 30 feet longer.
