  • Short Summary

    Women working at a petrol station - pumping petrol and cleaning windscreens.

  • Description

    No title.

    Man operates a petrol pump, by means of a camera trick (a dissolve) he transforms into a woman. She smiles as she operates the pump.

    "The gallons are no larger but they seem nicer when served up in this attractive way!" M/S of two women serving a customer. One fills the tank with petrol, the other cleans the car windscreen. The passenger in the car chats up the woman cleaning the windscreen. M/S of the woman as one closes the bonnet. C/U of the driver and passenger (both male) - they do a thumbs up signal and smile. They drive off as the girls wave. Very short item - incomplete.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 530.

    Note: nice footage of female petrol pump attendants.
