• Short Summary

    Fabulous item - 40s glamour girls use exercise machines in a gym with a swinging soundtrack.

  • Description

    Titles read: "BATTLE OF THE BULGES!"

    Location of events unknown - probably United States of America.

    Various shots of gorgeous 1940s glamour girls in swimsuits and high heels using exercise machines in a gym. The machines are "the latest mechanised units" of the kind that massage away lumps and bumps (supposedly) on legs, tummies and bottoms. Great footage for showing exercising machines and typical 1940s swimsuits and hairstyles. Fast swing music on soundtrack.

    Final shots show the girls using a variety of exercise apparatus including exercise bike, rowing machine and a kind of rotating tombola that seems to be massaging a girl's stomach and nether regions - fancy!
