  • Description

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

    Various locations of events.

    In London we see the latest craze in hairdressing. A male hairdresser called Mr Bertoni cuts a lock of hair from his pretty brunette victim and dips it in a plastic solution. He forms the hair into the initials 'S L' and sticks them on the forehead of the girl. (They happen to be the initials of this cataloguer, but I don't fancy it much!) The girl poses with the initials stuck on, looking like she doesn't fancy it much either. C/U of a blonde 'L' initial on a wave of the girl's hair. This is pretty bizarre!

    Various shots of a flock of swans swimming over to the snow-covered edge of a lake at the old Royal Palace in Potsdam, Germany. Some people stand on the side of the lake and feed the swans bread.

    In Australia we see various shots of Joe Kirkwood, a golf trick shot expert, doing some funny business on the golf course. A crowd of people watch and laugh as he attempts to take a shot in slow motion with an enormous golf club - it is very funny. He then hits a ball dangled from a piece of string by another man, hits a ball held under the foot of the man and takes a swipe at one balanced on top of the man's foot. The man grabs his foot in (mock?) pain after the last one.

    Note: this whole item goes out of rack several times - you may need to go back to original film if required.
