  • Description

    "Plays and books nowadays are full of gold-diggers of the blonde variety, but here are some Florida ladies who are real gold-diggers. They search the sands for missing jewels and ornaments..."

    M/S of group of girls in swimsuits digging into the sand and panning as if for gold. Closer shots of the girls as they kneel on the ground sifting through the sand. "A little uncertain, perhaps, but a good bonus may come along sometime." C/U of woman sifting sand. The tide comes in and splashes her but she carries on panning. She looks up and smiles at the camera.

    C/U of the contents of a pan - lots of bits of metal, beads etc. I guess this was how it was done before metal detectors!

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 519.
