  • Short Summary

    A collapsible umbrella is demonstrated by the gorgeous actress Heather Thatcher.

  • Description

    "Here's a cute little novelty from Canada which helps to smooth away that goosey feeling when the first rain-drops reach your nice new hat." Heather Thatcher walks towards the camera along a path through a park. She wears a fur wrap with matching hat and a velvet suit. Heather touches her face as if rain drops have appeared upon it. She takes an umbrella out and begins to unfold it. It is an extendible umbrella. She puts the umbrella up, wraps her fur around her and walks off.

    "And when you reverse - " Heather stops beside a bridge and folds down her umbrella. C/U of her folding up the brolly. She then places the cover on her mini umbrella and smiles broadly at the camera."Dinky, isn't it?" Heather poses with the brolly - very nice expressions.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 73.

    Note: Heather Thatcher was a popular stage actress of the 1920s.
