  • Short Summary

    A girl with her hands tied behind her back pulls a boat full of men across a river - bizarre!

  • Description

    "There aren't many girls who can jump into a river like this little eight-year-old." M/S of small rowing boat. Several men sit in the back of the boat and a man and young girl stand at the front. C/U of the girl revealing that her hands are tied behind her back. She dives off the front of the boat into the river. She then swims along pulling the boat behind her. Child cruelty!

    When the boat reaches the shore she is pulled out of the water and she stands on the edge of the river. "And when she's done towing a boat along, "Florence" dives divers dives." Short segment of shot only - Florence standing on a diving board.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 69.
