  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots of a woman in a swimsuit or unitard doing stretching exercises on the floor with a device that has foot stirrups and a long elastic string. She rolls about and puts her legs in the air (all in the cause of a trim body, you understand). Could be shot in the Pathe Studio.

    At a Colour Therapy Institute we see a girl lying face down on a couch while a woman in a white coat shines a high-powered light through a coloured screen onto her bare back. Commentator says the treatment is claimed to alleviate such popular troubles as lumbago and rheumatism.

    In the Pathe Studio (?) we see a woman put a briefcase down on a table then she walks off. A shifty looking-man comes along and picks up the case but a loud siren sounds from it so he thinks better of it. The woman comes back and turns the alarm off. We see the mechanisms that work the alarm. The man tries to grab the bag from the woman but she sets off the alarm by pressing a button in the handle. Exterior shot shows a man leaving the bag on his open-top sports car seat. When someone picks the bag up the alarm goes off - the thief quickly drops it.
