    Part of THAT THERE EAR issue.

    Pathe Studios, London.

    C/U of face of glamorous woman. Various shots of models - one is wrapped in a shawl, the others wear skimpy showgirl costumes.

    Various C/Us of a woman's ear. Diagram of ear, animated arrows point at different parts. Drawing of Neanderthal man with pointy ears ("the missing link"). C/U of woman's ear, half of picture is blacked out and an animated diagram of the inner ear is shown. Animation of ear drum working, dissolve to man's foot hitting pedal of a drum.

    More animated diagrams of the workings of the ear. Various shots of scientist doing experiment with flame in test tube (according to narrator it is "an artificial ear made from fire"). He shakes some keys and the flame responds, he then whistles and plays a violin to make flames jump.

    Animations are probably by Joe Noble.
