• Short Summary

    The making of a vacuum cleaner in a factory - could be Hoover.

  • Description

    Titles read: "A Clean Sweep - The private life of a vacuum cleaner".

    Location of events unknown - could be the Hoover factory on the outskirts of London.

    M/S of a woman wearing a headscarf and beating a carpet over a line. We then see several shots of the manufacture of a vacuum cleaner with different components being made and fitted together. Good shots of engineering, mass production, C/Us of tools. Commentator gives us details of how each piece works in the vacuum and statistics on how much dust it can suck up!

    The finished vacuum is tested by a girl in the factory; a sweeper is tested by a machine. Nice M/S of a woman in a flowery overall using the vacuum cleaner in living room of her home.
