  • Description

    United States of America.

    A large group of women dressed in gym-slips exercise on a beach with spectators looking on. Exercises include touching the toes and kicking a very large ball around whilst sitting down. An intertitle proclaims that all the women weigh 11 stone and aim to get down to 10. Shot of a funfair ride in the sea - people are swung around a central pole and dipped in the sea.

    Intertitle reads: "And in the city, the Anti-fat League have a strenuous time on the roof tops - everything to lose and nothing to gain." Shot of a large woman being fanned. Well-built (fat - if you want to be like that!) women exercise on a rooftop in a city. The women dance with each other. Very cute.

    Note: nice footage especially the large women exercising and dancing.
