  • Description

    Titles read: "Sportshots - Well-known Sports and Pastimes under the Cine-Camera lens. Billiards, for ladies! Described by Charles Eade - 'Sunday Express' Sports Editor. This week, for a change, Charles Eade will introduce a well-known Lady Player..." [Superimposed over M/S of woman taking billiards shot as Eade stands by.]

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Several shots of billiards champion Walter Lindrum taking shots on a small table (this sequence is not shot in the studio).

    We then see various shots of Miss Ruth Harrison, one of the leading women professionals in English Billiards, taking different shots, while Eade stands watching and keeps up a rather patronising commentary - I don't think he would make the same comments to a male player!

    "Walter Linden" should read Walter Lindrum.
