  • Short Summary

    Various shots of couples dancing in a West End night club - the Monseigneur.

  • Description

    Sub-titled: "What the West End is wearing. (Filmed at the Monseigneur, London.)" Introductory intertitle reads: "Not even Solomon in all his glory could outstrip (so to speak) the modern Milady, in her wonderful choice of raiment today - " High angle shot of smartly dressed couples on the dance floor dancing slowly to a smoochy song. "Lower backs to counter-balance the long skirts, short sleeves - and back straps of all types help the variety of today's modes." Closer shots of the dancers showing their backless dresses. The dance ends. Story seems incomplete. No C/Us of dancers.
