    New ideas caught by the camera: showgirls have body make-up sprayed on, a buffet car on a train and a temporary roof for Salzburg's famous open air theatre.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Caught by the Camera No. 2".

    Various locations where new ideas are caught by the camera.

    The first shows body make-up being applied to chorus girls using an airbrush. Nice opening shot of three girls in camiknickers about to get changed. Girls are seen changing costumes & having make up sprayed on in their dressing room.

    The next new idea is a buffet car on a Great Western train. People are seen eating, drinking and being served as they sit up at the bar. The steward takes teapots, cups and so on out of compact drawers behind the counter. Brief shot of the train speeding through the countryside.

    In Salzburg, Austria, we see a new idea for covering the famous open-air theatre when it rains. A roof is wound off huge rollers and covers the seating area and stage.
