  • Short Summary

    Great peep into what goes on at the beauty parlour - face packs.

  • Description

    A look into a way of fighting against "the ravages of Old Man Time" in the beauty parlour.

    A woman lays back in a chair whilst a beautician gently applies face cream. Pads are then placed over the eyes. A thick layer of Kemolite is applied - radioactive mud from the Carpathians. Nice C/U of woman's face covered with mud. The face pack hardens and the mud is then crumbled off. C/U of the woman admiring her wrinkle free skin in a hand mirror. She is a middle aged woman rather than a youngster.

    Note: one intertitle has been spliced in upside down.
