    Cast members of Drury Lane's 'Wild Violets' skate about a frozen lake in jazzy outfits.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Brighter Skating - Too long we in England have been content to take our skating (if any) too drably - ".

    L/S and M/S of people skating around on a frozen lake in winter.

    Intertitle reads: "When the next skating spell comes let's take a tip from these boys and girls in Drury Lane's 'Wild Violets' and put a bit of brightness into things - like these costumes -".

    Various shots of the cast of 'Wild Violets' putting on their skates and skating across a frozen lake / outdoor ice rink in jazzy skating outfits. Some of the girls wear fur-trimmed ice-skating skirts; the men wear knickerbocker-type trousers. One couple dance around on the ice together to some tinny music coming from a wind-up gramophone; the others watch and cheer.
