    "In this case, the "hare's" a "him", and who wouldn't like a few charming "hounds" like these chasing one across country?"

L/S of the girls about to set off. M/S of them smiling at the camera. L/S of them setting off. M/S of man getting off his bike and walking under a barbed wire fence. Various shots of the girls in pursuit. The girls jump off their bikes to push them through a ditch. They duck under the barbed wire. The girls pick up their bikes and carry them along a tow path. They jump off their bikes and push them down a hill. The "hare" rides through a river, the "hounds" follow suit.

    "And after the chase is over - a little "unstiffening" - " One of the girls stands inside the belt of an old fashioned "slimming" machine. One of those that vibrates to shake off the fat! Other girls stand in their coats putting on make up.
