  • Description

    THIS DIGIBETA VERSION HAS BEEN MADE FROM THE PRINT - VERSION ON TAPE *PM0848* WILL PROBABLY BE BETTER QUALITY AS TAKEN FROM THE NEGATIVE.

    Filmed near Hamble, Hampshire.

    Two women climb aboard an Avian biplane. C/U of woman in cockpit. Plane takes off. Air to air shot of the plane flying above a coastline. The plane lands in a field. The girls climb out and take off their long coats. They have swimsuits underneath! A third friend joins them and they run down to the sea, waving to the cameraman. We see them having a swim then towelling themselves dry. Intertitle reads: "Home Jane!". The girls push the plane up the beach then we see it again in the air.

    Nice to illustrate rich girls at play?

    Safety print exists.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
