• Short Summary

    Children's Christmas card competition - winners have their cards made and sold across the country.

  • Description

    Elstree Studios.

    A large room with three long tables filled with paintings. Men and women browse around looking at them. They are judges at children's Christmas cards competition. The best works are to be produced and sold in shops for charity.

    Succession of shots of works, some are really great. A little girl, six years old Gillian Prosser, stands next to a painting of the three wise men holding a Christmas card of three wise men in one hand and her teddy in another. She and the rest of the prize winners were entertained by the stars in Elstree Studios. Several shots of children mingling with adults.

    Roger Moore is giving autograph to a girl. Avengers girl, Linda Thorson chats with children. Bruce Forsyth congratulates young Gillian Prosser - she seems very shy.

    Several shots of people buying children's Christmas cards in a shop.

    Note: Proceeds of sale of these Christmas cards will go to the Variety Club of Great Britain. Fred Pontin presents the prizes.
