Titles read: "L.N.E.R. - PATHE CINEMA CAR - SPECIAL PROGRAMME" [superimposed over M/S of four steam trains coming towards us along the railway track.] "Fancy Headgear".
Philadelphia, United States of America.
At the fund-raising Benefit Ball for the University of Pennsylvania Hospital we see men and women in evening dress wearing outlandish hats and head-dresses - American-Indian feathers, huge cowboy hats and so on. Prizewinners Mrs Price-Headly and Paul Dagler (?) sit chatting - she wears a crown on a frilled cap, he wears a globe of the world with international flags sticking out of it.
Another socialite wears a length of cellophane over her head, tied with ribbons at the neck and crown. George Harrison wears a great hat of a skullcap with a plastic lady's foot and leg on the top! High angle shot of people dancing and wandering about at the ball.
