  • Description

    A woman in a fur trimmed coat and hat demonstrates a novelty torch.

    C/U of her unscrewing the top off an umbrella. She pulls out a metal tube and shows it to the camera. She reapplies the end of the brolly. It is presumably a torch as she points it at her front door as she turns a key in the lock and pushes down her door handle. "Another ingenious safety novelty - a walking stick that shows a warning light when the knob is pressed"

    C/U of woman pressing the top of a walking stick. A light comes on in the handle of the stick. "But, pity the poor motorist if the road gets full of walking-stick lights!" Surreal shot of lots of tiny lights moving around the screen.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 347.
