  • Description

    (Main Pathetone titles.)

    Full titles read: "Beauties of today - Filmed at the famous Opera House, ----." - could be Paris, France? (remainder of title is obscured by timecode.) (new title) "National distinctions in beauty are rapidly dying. Probably the screen is levelling up beauty more than anything... glance at these International Competitions in the newest Beauty Competition."

    Opera House, probably Paris, France?

    Various shots of glamorous women in evening gowns being led across a sort of curved, raised catwalk by men in tailcoats. The audience applauds and cheers at their wondrous beauty.
