    Star of "Pins and Needles" Mlle Souret poses for the camera - eats chocolates, models frocks etc.

  • Description

    Mlle Souret is the winner of a French Beauty Contest who appears in the Gaiety Revue "Pins and Needles".

    Mlle Souret enters the set of a parlour dressed in an extravagant dress and jacket. Her maid hands her a letter. C/U of her reading the letter as she takes off her jacket. She sits on the sofa and the maid hands her some cards. Shot over her shoulder as she looks at the cards (they are caricatures of black children) - she looks at the camera and laughs. The maid brings out a dress and a joke is made in an intertitle about it looking like a lamp shade. Mlle Souret models it for the camera. Out comes an even bigger frock and by a camera trick, magically she is seen wearing it. She sits on the sofa and eats chocolates from a box, offering one to the cameraman.

    Titles are in pidgin English.
