    Girls in Hawaiian costume with garlands round their necks and grass skirts give customers a treat at Leonard Pountney's shop.

    C/U shot of a mural of an exotic south sea island beach. M/S middle aged man sitting in chair is attended by a girl dressed up - Hawaiian style, with grass skirt, bikini top and a flower in her hair. She puts a towel around his neck, and reaches for the scissors. She starts to trim his hair . M/S shot of feet at the doorway pan up to show girl in grass skirt, she moves across to the man . He is seen being given a manicure as well as a hair cut.

    M/S Leonard Pountney behind a table with bottles of beer and glasses. One of the girls takes a beer bottle on a tray for the customer - he tries to pour it into a glass - she stops him and pours it over his head instead. C/U beer trickling over his forehead. She dries his hair with a towel. Haircut done, he gets up and one of the girls puts a garland around his neck.

    Note : There is a news clipping in the documentation file.

    Same Leonard Pountney is filmed in a few other fantastic Colour Pictorial films. Bizarre as much as entertaining they are all highly recommended - CP 279, CP 405, CP 473 & CP 728. He also briefly appears in CP 250.
