Golden false nails and miniature pictures painted on real ones.
Titles read: "NOW OUR SPECIAL SECTION for the Ladies - Feminine pictorialities (No. 5) - Finger Tips".
Location of events unknown, probably London.
Great sequence shows a glamorous woman sitting at a dressing table mirror. She then opens a large compact to reveal several golden false nails inside. She sticks them over her own fingernails and shows them off by adjusting her hairdo before us.
We then see various shots of artist Stanley Birchit (sp? Birchet?) painting a sea scene on one of the fingernails of a woman. She lounges in a chair while he works on his picture then admires the result.
C/U of the last of 20 tiny pictures Stanley has created on a square the size of a postage stamp. Another shot shows the stamp beside the pictures. Commentator says Queen Elizabeth owns several specimens of Stanley's unique work.
Cataloguer's note: the above would not look out of place in 2001 - there's nothing new under the sun!
