Fabulous costumes and comical high jinks on display at the Variety Ball.
Albert Hall, London.
Intertitle: "Some FOOTLIGHT FAVOURITES who helped to make the Variety Ball in aid of the V.A.B.F. such a great success".
C/U of a young woman slowly spinning around - she has an amazing shiny costume that looks like a basket of roses. M/S of an old man in tails and a woman in a pinafore - a comical maid character? They lark about and the woman seems to be refusing the man's advances - slightly cheeky! C/U of the odd couple.
C/U of a girl in a black lace costume in shape of a Spanish fan - she turns slowly for the camera. C/U of three men in dinner jackets, they cross arms and shake each other's hands. M/S of a woman in a Chinese costume and a man in Victorian dress sharing a hilarious joke.
More shots of the girl dressed as a basket of roses. C/U of a young woman with a Shakespearean ruff around her neck. More shots of the man in tails and the woman in a pinafore - the man is offering her money which she refuses! More shots of the woman in a Chinese costume and her companion.
M/S of a man and two women all dressed as gypsies serving ice cream to a man in tails.
