  • Description

    No title.

    Paper records state that these are the "Chislehurst" caves - not sure which part of London they are in. M/S of group of people entering a cave. Various shots of the party of female tourists being shown around the caves by a male guide. One of the girls is given a leg-up to climb up to where smoke or steam is emerging from a crevice.

    "The high explosives must have left some high spirits behind - !" The girls look agitated as smoke billows out. "And there are over twenty miles of these caves and passages - the lair of our "Cavish" ancestors!" Story incomplete.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 541.
