  • Description

    Introductory intertitle is written in the style of a letter: "Dear Editor - How can I make an impression on the girl across the way? Yours Algernon" Ed: Try this way, Algy dear...." L/S of two girls standing beside a large wooden gate. A man suddenly leaps over it.

    "If the girls are slow... do it this way...." Slow motion footage of man jumping the gate. "And if your rival's cornered the market, this should impress her..." L/S of a country lane, a man suddenly leaps over the hedge into the road. He falls on the ground and rolls over - all in slow motion. "Should the last not impress her... or the road... give it up Algy, and take up fretwork." Shot missing.

    Was probably a Pathe Pictorial item - issue number unknown.

    Note: image quality of this film is poor.
