  • Short Summary

    Fabulous film showing women who have foxes as pets so that they can turn them into fur coats!

  • Description

    THIS DIGIBETA VERSION HAS BEEN MADE FROM THE PRINT - VERSION ON TAPE *PM1170* WILL PROBABLY BE BETTER QUALITY AS TAKEN FROM THE NEGATIVE.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Some of the girls have formed the "Get Yourself a Silver Fox" Club."

    L/S of half a dozen girls walking in a countryside setting with baby fox cubs on leads. The girls are dressed in flowery summer frocks. L/S of the girls sitting down on chairs and benches with legs crossed cuddling and petting the fox cubs. C/U of one of the cubs as a woman strokes it. C/Us of various women with fox cubs in their arms - they stroke and cuddle them. Intertitle states that "In the arms now, around the neck some day" is the Club Motto. M/S of two women with cubs on their laps.

    "This ambitious lady is learning early - " C/U of young girl (3 or 4 years old) cuddling a cub. "Demonstrating how crazy foxes are - " L/S of foxes running all over the place in a wooded area. C/U of a young cub. "Little Silver Foxes which will grow into furs one day for the Club - !" The cute little foxes climb in and around a bucket which presumably contains food. Some of the foxes eat from bowls on the ground.

    Note: brilliant! Love the irony of the Club Motto. Little do those cute little foxes know that all those women want is to have their hides!

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 437.

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably to be found on "Fashion Fun & Fancy" roll.
