  • Description

    United States of America. "Now we know where the bargain counter hands train for the sales!" A group of girls put on American Football helmets in front of a mirror. They chat and gossip. One girl powders her face in front of the mirror. Low angle shot of the girls running onto a Football pitch - they yell as they run along. M/S of large crowd watching the game - all men. L/S of the game - two girls teams play. Men shout encouragement from the sidelines. One girl makes a long run to score a goal.

    Actually shots of the game show the stands completely empty so crowd shots must be edited in from another film.

    Piece of original paperwork has what I assume to be one of the original intertitles written on it: "Buxom Chicago Bears and Blushing California Roses show good old sales offensive on Philadelphia gridiron." - this was an American story re-titled for use in Britain.
