  • Short Summary

    Great footage of a beauty parade - eccentric swimwear is modelled - nice leg shots.

  • Description

    New Californian fashions in swimwear are modelled. The camera pans across some weird and wonderful outfits. The girls all wear their stockings rolled down and some wear what look like wrestling boots! Pan across the girls legs to show their socks and stockings. Girls walk in front of the camera and do a twirl. There are some very unusual outfits and one girl with very long hair worn loose. One girl (the winner of a competition perhaps) poses for the camera in C/U. Excellent stuff - especially the C/Us of legs - some of the costumes are quite bizarre.

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 152.

    Note: very nice shots of kooky costumes!

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably to be found in the "Friends of Fashion" roll.
