• Short Summary

    Curvy blonde is measured by dress designer Captain Phillip Kunick using his own technique.

  • Description

    No titles.


    Various shots of Mayfair dress designer and anthropometrist Captain Phillip Kunick measuring various parts of a blonde girl in a shiny swimsuit with a large, caliper-type instrument. The blonde is Miss Britain of 1952, Lillemore Knudson. Kunick is demonstrating his own measuring technique that was used in a recent official survey of 5,000 British women. Lillemore has (greasepaint?) pencil marks all over her where she is to be measured from and to.

    Two women sit at a desk; one is in a white coat and is seen taking notes, the other looks like a model. Lillemore's arms, thighs, neck and bust are measured, then her waist and hips. We are told that her hips are 37 1/2 inches and her waist 23 1/2, but her rather hefty bust is not mentioned.

    M/S of Lillemore walking into shot wearing a pretty, summery dress. She leans against a wall, looks up with a joyous expression and we pan down to outrageous C/Us of her buxom bosom, tiny waist and curvy hips.

    Note: there are cameraman's notes on file.

    "Phillip Kunick" in text and tags should read Philip Kunick.

    "Lillemore Knudson" played bit parts in several films of the 1950s, where her name is credited as Lillemor Knudsen.
