    The River Club, London.

    A look what's in this season at the fashion show of Mayfair Couturiers Ray and Dora Rhavis.

    John Mills and his daughter Hayley are seen in the audience drinking wine. Top shot of models dressed in glamorous cocktail dresses sauntering up the cat walk. Various C/Us of London's fashion elite in the audience.

    M/S of a gambling table in another part of the River Club. C/U of a sexy blonde woman playing cards. C/U of the roulette wheel. More shots of models on the cat walk. C/U of two women in the audience (possibly the Rhavis sisters?)

    According to the narrator models have to walk through the casino to get changed. Various shots of models swishing through unnoticed by the gamblers. A model in a smart suit walks through - gradually the men gambling begin to notice. More models slink past and the gamblers attention is drawn further away from the cards - they give nods of approval and we hear a smattering of applause. L/S of the casino filled with dirty old gamblers flirting with saucy young models.

    Note: shots (including some of John and Hayley Mills) from the male fashions section of this show were used in Colour Pictorial - CP 472 - BEAU MODERN on Pathe Master tape *PM0247*.

    Cuts exist - please see separate record.

    "John Mills and his daughter Hayley" - also on the shot is John Mills' wife, the playwright Mary Hayley Bell.

    The "BEAU MODERN" clip referred to above is clip 247.08.

    "C/U of two women in the audience (possibly the Rhavis sisters?)" - yes, that's Raemonde and Dorothey Rahvis.

    ADDITION: Further to my earlier naming of Dorothy Rahvis earlier, the name may alternatively be Dora.
