    Introductory intertitle reads: "Down at Deauville they run an open air factory for making india-rubber bodies - ! The material is human."

    L/S of several woman doing exercises in the open air. A trainer helps them to stretch their bodies over a wooden bar. "Evidently some ladies don't mind how they treat their figures in the cause of suppleness!" M/S of a trainer forcing a woman's leg up as she stands against a pillar. "This must be a case of the bend justifying the means" - a woman does handstands.

    Note: Print shows bad decomposition damage print through - images probably unusable. This is one of the NFTVA prints made from our decomposing nitrate.
