• Short Summary

    American football for small boys in New York and football for girls in Australia.

  • Description

    Titles read: "FOOTBALL... FOR KIDS AND CUTIES" (Dublin issue).

    New York, United States of America.

    Various shots show two teams of small boys playing American football in a city playground. Commentator says the two teams are the Demon Dwarves from Hell's Kitchen and the Midget Maulers from the West Side. A small audience of children watch the game.

    Sydney, Australia.

    We then see several shots two girls' football team (one is called the Lillies of Yaguna, the other isn't named). M/S pan across one of the teams, then their legs. Several shots of the match in progress . Commentator doesn't seem to take it seriously at all, commenting on Margery's ankles and calves.

    The girl goalie kicks the ball then takes a puff out of her top pocket and powders her face. At the end of the match the girls all pile on top of the referee and carry him along on their shoulders before dropping him on the ground.
