    Full titles read: "A Million (Dollars) Charms!" (new title) "Miss Fay Marbe, the well-known Actress - values her charms (including her famous smile) at over one million dollars!"

    United States of America.

    M/S of actress Fay Marbe sitting in an armchair as a gentleman standing beside her greets her and says "I understand you've taken out considerable insurance on charms". She says "I have, considerable!".

    Closer shots of Fay as she tells us her hands have been insured for $100,000 and her smile for $250,000. C/U of Fay's fingers 'walking' down her skirt towards the hem as she says "And now, I have a little secret for you, mmm-hmm! Watch very closely...". She lifts her skirt to show off her shapely thighs clad in shiny silk stockings (she stops lifting before we get to the stocking tops, although they could be tights), telling us her legs have been insured for $1,000,000. She puts one of her legs up on a stool to give us the full effect; a man off camera says they are cheap at the price. Fay says "Oh, Major!". Saucy stuff!
