    "Betty Nuttall" in text and tags should read Betty Nuthall.

    Betty went on to win the Ladies Singles at the US Open in 1930. She also had a series of Ladies Doubles and Mixed Doubles wins at the US Open and French Open between 1929 and 1933.

    Note that the footage of Betty ends at 00:34. At 00:39 footage resumes with an unrelated story of a military inspection.
