  • Description

    No title.

    M/S of a woman lying on the floor with her head on a pillow. Her ankles are held by another woman who, standing up, moves the woman's legs around in a circular motion. Another angle of this procedure. M/S of the woman who is manipulating the legs. She wears a white coat - a beauty consultant presumably. The legs are turned around and around in a circle.

    "Correct blood circulation and a slimmer line are obtained by this method", says "Paul Caret" the famous fashion expert." Pan down from the beauty therapist to the woman lying on the floor. High angle shot of the woman as she lies on the ground - she has a broad smile. Her legs are moved round and round.

    "More youthful and healthy every day, is the result claimed for this reducing method." Another woman has her legs moved from side to side. Another technique where the legs are swung from side to side means that the woman shuffles along the floor. High angle of woman being shuffled along - she laughs! She is then shuffled backwards. It is a bit sexual! Various shots of the exercises.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 508.

    Safety print exists. Probably to be found on the "Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever" reel.
