    Introductory intertitle reads: "Nowadays, with Eve taking up all sorts of outdoor (and indoor) sports and pastimes, freedom in dress is essential."

    Shot of a women's hockey game then of a female high jumper. "Here's a novel garment to give complete freedom - a combined skirt-bodice and brassiere all in one." Two women in a dressing room setting look at the new garment. They are both in their underwear. One of the women puts on the new garment and her friend admires it.

    "No separate undie-things to work out of place - no strain on bust or waist, and it replaces the old regime in a moment", explained Mr Spevack, the designer." C/U of another version of the undergarment. The other woman puts it over her head. The two women pose in their outfits and the second woman does some high kicks to show the ease of movement possible. "Casting their shadows before..." intertitle precedes sequence showing shadow silhouettes of women taking off their clothes and putting on the new garments. M/S of four women standing in the dressing room setting, all wearing the new outfits. One of the girls does some high kicks.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 456.

    Note: flash-frame intertitles.

    Safety print exists. Probably to be found on the "A Thing of Beauty" roll.
