    Italian women work in rice fields, a Vienna cat show and the latest American summer fashions.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In Lomellina in Italy we see women working in the rice fields, pulling the watergrass out by hand. (None of them look much like Silvana Mangano, but then they are all wearing large sun hats.)

    In Vienna, Austria, we see several shots of cats and kittens at the Ladies' Cat Exhibition. Little Persian kittens climb out of a basket and a tiny Siamese kitten is seen "waiting for the milk bar to open" - very cute! Some shots show cats sitting with dogs.

    In the United States of America we see some of the latest summer fashions. A white organdie dress "for dinner at home"; lounging pyjamas with gaudy jewellery; a long striped skirt and flouncy blouse; two long and flouncy organdie dresses.
