  • Description

    "Pillow fighting used to be the prerogative of boys. Today, however, - well just glance at this - "

    L/S of a large building - presumably a school with a crowd of girls standing in front of it on an expanse of grass. Pillows are being thrown from the building to the girls below. They throw them back. High angle shot of the crowd of girls whacking each other with pillows. "Plenty of white feathers here - but they're all in the air - not the "Her" - "

    Top shot of girls fighting with the air full of feathers. C/U of a girl writhing around on the floor which is covered in feathers. She is getting whacked with a pillow and as she struggles to get up we see her bloomers and stocking tops. M/S of more girls fighting. "What would mother say if she saw her dear daughter now!" C/U of girl covered in feathers. Panning shot of a group of girls looking a bit battle weary and spitting out feathers.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue number 412.

    Note: bizarre and very St Trinian's!
