  • Description

    Location of events unknown.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Now the fine weather is here and lighter clothes are the vogue, Eve is busy getting into slimmer trim."

    A group of young women jog across a bridge. They then do leg flexing exercises and some high kicks. They look like enthusiastic amateurs rather than showgirls. Nice shots of the girls touching up their make-up in the open air and C/Us of their bodies as they exercise. "These are the most beneficial exercises for the figure one can try" says Mrs Sheldon Wilkinson, the Expert - " M/S of a woman lying on her back doing leg stretches and "scissors" - she flashes off her bloomers. Various other shots of the girls doing leg exercises including "scissors" and "bicycling". C/U of a young girl (about 7 or 8 years old) doing some leg exercises.

    Girls are "back to nature" types with headscarves and leotards.

    Note: no commentary but a nice musical accompaniment of Boccerini's Minuet. A cute gentle film.
