    "And these Continental Girls really are all together in this massed drill spectacle." High angle shot of hundreds of girls in sports outfits performing synchronised exercise routine in the open air - probably at a sports stadium. Closer shot of the girls lifting their legs in unison.

    "When breakfast seems to pall a little, Eve might try a few of these exercises." M/S of the girls doing bending exercises. They bend forward, touching their knees with their noses, then bend backwards again. High angle L/S of the women exercising. There is a band visible in the foreground. A woman stands on a platform waving a flag to let the women know what to do.

    "And these give you "balance" M/S of girls standing on low beams and exercising. They are balancing. Closer shot of the girls as they stand on the wooden beams swinging their legs backwards and forwards.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 625.
