Good item showing girls from 'Charlot's Revue 1924' dancing onboard the 'Aquitania'.
Title - 'Southampton. To Brighten America! British beauties of the "London Revue of 1924" leave on the "Aquitania"'.
MS group of young women in overcoats and hats on ship's deck; doing a dancing walk cross-stepping and swinging their arms; another row behind keeps time; doing same movements in place. Yet another row of men and women come bouncing in; in foreground and keep up an energetic dance.
MS girls posing looking over and under railing. CU Beatrice Lillie and Gertrude Lawrence clowning with a life preserver around them - says Aquitania - Liverpool - these two are real fashion queens and their headgear looks influenced by The Sheikh - one turban and other a long Arab-type head-dress in dark colour. Very roaring twenties. Lots of bobbed hair; little modified cloche-type hats; etc. The cast of Charlot's Revue of 1924; departing for America; includes Jack Buchanan.
