  • Description

    Chessington, Surrey.

    A person wearing King Kong mask is looking in the mirror. Man, Mr Dyke Richens, takes the mask off and corrects the eye colour with a small brush. He makes rubber masks as a hobby.

    Monkey's head sculpture is the first stage of the mask making. One has to be a good sculptor to be able to make a good mask. Mr Richens is seen sculpting the head which is further used as a mould onto which rubber is poured to shape a mask. Mr Richens is seen cutting the excess rubber around the ears. Camera shows many finished masks hanging on the walls of a workshop - it would be fun having some of them.

    Film finishes with Mr Richens doing finishing touches on monkey's head and trying it on. C/U of Mr Richens as a very sweet green monkey.
