• Short Summary

    A cotton picking machine in the United States of America, new plaid fashion accessories and a tiny Australian aeroplane called 'The Flying Flea'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CINEVIEWS IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    In a cotton plantation in the United States of America we see a machine that picks cotton. The cotton is separated from the plants and gathered in large sacks on the back of the machine.

    Several shots of women wearing plaid / tartan / check accessories; cummerbunds, hats and handbags. (Location of events unknown, probably United States of America.)

    In Melbourne, Australia, we see a little boy called Eric Morris sitting in a tiny aeroplane, as his brother Howard wheels it past a full-sized plane at an airport. A man fills the tank with petrol (Eric asks for a pint), Howard starts up the propellor and Eric drives off - the 'Flying Flea' doesn't actually leave the ground.
