  • Short Summary

    A very young girl does some diving stunts.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "- and most offhand about it, too - "

    M/S of a man standing by the side of the swimming pool. A tiny tot (3 years old) stands on one of the man's hands and then dives into the pool. The little girl swims to the side and the man pulls her out. Various shots of the man manhandling the girl.

    "Dot", they call her, and she's a hefty little dot for 3 years and 41 lbs." She swims like a mad thing. We then see Dot dive from a fairly high board. C/U of Dot and her dad (presumably) standing by the side of the pool - he holds her in his arms.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 544 - may be a copy of a story that originally appeared in EFR 48 which has similar title and intertitles.
