  • Short Summary

    The Women's League of Health and Beauty do some routines on the beach.

  • Description

    THIS DIGIBETA VERSION HAS BEEN MADE FROM THE PRINT - VERSION ON TAPE *PM0920* WILL PROBABLY BE BETTER QUALITY AS TAKEN FROM THE NEGATIVE.

    "A little clothing and lots of air seems to be the aim of the "P.T." Brigade on the Continent." states the introductory intertitle.

    Good M/S of girls exercising. Couples stand back to back with arms linked, one bends over and the other is propelled over their back. They then repeat the action in reverse. High angle shot of large number of girls exercising on the banks of a lake. The girls do synchronised exercises - various shots. All quintessential "Health and Beauty" stuff. They wear swimsuits. Slow and graceful movements are demonstrated. Some of the girls then dance along the beach sideways - a kind of balletic exercise. "Exercises like these make men like exercises like these -" High angle shot of the girls exercising. M/S of girls sitting on the sand with legs apart touching each toe in turn. Very good!

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 473.

    Note: I am reliably informed that this is definitely the "Women's League of Health and Beauty".

    Safety print exists. Probably to be found on the "Thing of Beauty" reel.
