• Short Summary

    Item showing us how to play darts ends with a dart being thrown into an empty cigarette holder in a girl's mouth.

  • Description

    Titles read: "DO YOU DART?"

    Various locations of events - probably all London.

    Various shots of people playing darts - men in flat caps in a pub, women in slinky dresses in a posh drawing room, girls sitting on the sand with a portable dart board (presumably at the beach but looks like a studio shot).

    Animated diagrams and live action footage show us different kinds of darts used by players, explain the dart board, position and scoring. M/S of trophy cups awarded by the National Darts Association. C/Us of Honorary Secretary Charles Garner and Stan Cutten, the London and Home Counties Champion. The two men play a match in a pub as commentator explains the game.

    M/S of a brunette showgirl in a top hat and sparkly two-piece costume joining dart expert Ronald Garner. She takes a bow and smokes a cigarette in a holder, then tosses the fag away and puts the cigarette holder back in her mouth. Ronald throws a dart and slow-motion C/U shows it landing in the cigarette holder - yikes! (The girl looks cool as a cucumber about the whole thing.)
