Star Item

Description

Extreme C/U of a round metal disc with a kind of latticework over the top of it; fade out. C/U of a man holding a nail in his fingertips as commentator asks "Did you, to start with, hit this nail on the head?"; the man turns the nail so we see the top of the head, as in the extreme C/U.
