    Shot in Morlaix, Brittany, France.

    L/S of a cobbled street. Horses are led along one side of the street. Men in flat caps walk beside them. Shot of the horses walking away from the camera. Long shot from high-ish angle of men and horses milling around in the town square. High angle long shot (overexposed) of the horse fair - hundreds of men and horses in a large area - camera pans across. C/U of man in large hat standing with his horses.

    Intertitle reads: "No lady in a bargain basement is keener than a Breton horse-dealer - but their methods are different..." Two men shake hands on a deal. They talk animatedly and slap each others' hands. Men stand nearby watching and laughing. They seem to be negotiating a price. "And when the last handclasp is over, another horse has changed hands." L/S of a village street, a horse and owner run down hill - couple of men stand by and watch. Two men in traditional Breton hats with long ribbons stand with others and look at the horses. M/S of three men standing by a tree talking.
