• Short Summary

    A chimpanzee has a haircut and a manicure - the chimp looks miserable throughout.

  • Description

    "Mary is a Chimpanzee - and doesn't mind the attentions of the barber and manicurist one little bit." A female beauty therapist or barber lathers the chin of a chimp! She says: "Now just relax", the chimp makes funny faces. M/S of the chimpanzee having a haircut. The barber says: "I'm going to give you the latest style - The National Air Bobby (? That's what it sounds like...) C/U of the shaved and trimmed chimpanzee. The chimp plays one note on a harmonica then has her nails manicured. The woman asks if the chimp would like black nail polish. The monkey doesn't look very happy about any of this if you ask me! They seem to be calling her "Morna" rather than "Mary".
