  • Short Summary

    Female students receive their degrees from University College.

  • Description

    Dublin, Republic of Ireland, Eire, Southern Ireland.

    Title: "Bobbed Bachelors will their hair get shorter by 'degrees'?"

    Female students are presented with their degrees at University College, Dublin.

    M/S of a group of young women - all with highly fashionable bobbed hair - posing for for the camera in their mortar boards and gowns, each holding their degree certificates.

    M/S of a parade of (mostly male) students in fancy dress, some carry placards, one reads - "free hair cuts for lady students", another reads - "cheaper hash" (probably "mash" badly written but funnier if read as "hash"!).

    Brief M/S of the flapper girl graduates. C/U of the back of a female student's head; she wears a mortar board and has her hair cut in a daringly short bob, she turns and smiles at the camera. Panning M/S of a group of male and female students in their mortar boards and gowns posing for the camera - they seem in high spirits.

    Note: for more shots of graduates at University College and the subsequent rag parade please refer to story - DEGREE DAY IS JOY-DAY - DUBLIN - and - UNIVERSITY COLLEGE RAG - both also in G 1136.
