Star Item
  • Description


    Various locations of events.

    In Italy (?) we see tiny radios fitted inside a walnut and a pine kernel.

    At a pub in Broadstairs, Kent, we see men using a periscope to see who is in the other part of the bar.

    We then see "the latest decorative ideas for shapely legs" - stockings with moon and star shapes and belisha beacons painted on them. Another idea shows a picture of a bulldog tied onto each leg with a ribbon - very bizarre! A workman digging in a ditch in the road looks up and scratches his head, supposedly watching the decorated legs go by. (Location of events unknown - probably London.)

    Next we see women modelling an assortment of bizarre hats; the first is a cabbage leaf tied on a lady's head with a ribbon - it looks like a real leaf! Then a pixie-style hat, with several horse brasses attached to it - weird. The best one is a hat shaped like a dart board, with darts stuck in it. The last is a 'Peace Hat' - a simple black hat with two (fake) doves positioned at the front. I'm not sure if these really are the latest fashions or a 'filler' cooked up by some joker! (Location of events unknown - probably London.)

    Lastly, we see comedian Billy Bennett playing golf before a small crowd of people. He makes jokes and engages in some silly business with his caddie before taking his shot. (Location of events unknown.)
