Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In London (?) we see the stage actress Miss Whybrew (her first name in not mentioned) winding wool on the paws of her dog, Bill - supposedly in her dressing room although it looks like a set. We are told the actress has knitted 200 jumpers and everyone backstage at the Savoy Theatre, where Miss Whybrew is appearing in 'Clive of India', wears a Whybrew jumper. The actress models some of her creations and knits furiously while her dresser puts on her period costume for the play. Miss Whybrew is called onstage and takes her knitting with her. (This one is quite funny - think it is the deadpan commentary that does it!)

    In the United States of America we see various shots of two extremely large furry bats hanging upside down from a branch in a room. Commentator refers to them as 'flying dogs' - they look almost like black Jack Russells! One of them opens and shuts his wings like a cape - he is most definitely a male (we can see it clearly).

    Note: according to paperwork this item originally ended with a French story comparing Edwardian fashions with the present day ones. This section is currently missing.
