  • Short Summary

    Opening sequence to Eve's Film Review cinemagazine - ghostly dancers.

  • Description

    Instructions read: "Mr Operator please! Don't detach this lead - remember the next man. No. 405."

    A graphic representation of a theatrical proscenium arch is featured. Through the means of optical printing female dancers are superimposed one by one on the stage as tiny ghostly figures. They look as though they are doing the Charleston.

    The name "Eve's Film Review" is superimposed over the stage scene and the words: "A Pathe Production. Distributed by First National Pathe Ltd." The girls do a high kick routine swirling their skirts around.

    Note: this is one of several title sequences used for Eve's Film Review. Sometimes Eve's Film Review went by the name of "Eve and Everybody's Film Review" so that the boys wouldn't feel left out! This was presumably the title sequence used for issue 405. Length below is for the title sequence only, not the projectionist instructions.
