  • Description

    Group of chorus girls are seen on stage singing a song and dancing. Fred Dyer - famous welterweight and Physical Culture Expert takes the girls through a vigorous exercise programme.

    The girls (now in gym gear of sorts) skip with ropes, throw a medicine ball to each other in a circle, hit a punch-ball, perform sit ups, air cycling and high kicks etc. One of the intertitles reads: "Give your best friends - your internal organs - a treat! Do these floor exercises - regularly." Fred gets one of the girls to have a go with a punch ball. One swipe and the ball is knocked off its spot. He feels her muscles! One of the women spas with Fred in the boxing ring and knocks him over. By means of a camera trick (optical printing), the girls appear to dance on Fred's arm.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 331.

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably to be found in the "Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever" roll.
