  • Description

    "Every woman in the world is thrilled over a wedding... and the dresses! These charming "Rahvis" models were made for the recent Royal Wedding, for Princess Sybilla of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, and Princess Ingrid of Sweden."

    M/S of one woman posing and two women walking hand in hand. All three wear matching long bridesmaid's dresses. The girls turn to show off their frocks then all three join hands and walk seductively towards the camera. C/U of one of the models. "Specially-dyed enamel velvet was the material, and striking features were the tight-fitting bodices with "cowl" fronts, and "puffed" sleeves." Camera tilts up from the hem of the dress to the top. Dissolve to a closer view of the model and dress. M/S of two of the bridesmaids. They turn to show the backs of the dresses.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 543 or 543. Paper records state the latter, title card the former.
