    Titles read: "STAR'S DRESSER".

    Location of events unknown - London?

    Various shots of middle-aged Daisy Flanagan, personal maid / dresser to actress / comedienne Beatrice Lillie, working around her own house. She dusts the mantelpiece (large portrait of Beatrice on the wall) and makes the beds. Her small son, Michael, toddles about and looks at make-up on the dressing table. Daisy puts on her coat and goes out.

    M/S of Daisy walking out of her house and along a street to go shopping. She has two small dogs on a lead and carries a basket. We see her buying fruit at an outdoor stall.

    Exterior of theatre with Beatrice Lillie's name out front. Brief shot of Daisy helping Beatrice to take off her fur coat as she sits before a theatre dressing table mirror. Beatrice is wearing an interesting small hat.
