    Women in furs, men with mice and children visit a rabbit, mouse and guinea pig show.

  • Description

    Titles read: "FUR AND FANCIERS".

    London.

    Various shots of rabbits being peered at and examined at some kind of rabbit, mouse and guinea pig show. Judges look at rabbits on tables. A man holds a rabbit while a woman blows on its fur. Another man looks at a rabbit then we pan across to show he has 2 mice crawling over his hat. Another man has a tiny mouse with sprightly whiskers peeking out of his top pocket - very cute.

    A woman in a fur hat, cape and gloves looks at a rabbit held by a judge - probably rabbit fur. A schoolboy holds a mouse on his hand while an old woman shakes with laughter. A middle-aged woman reads a book on 'Mice For The Hobbyist, Exhibitor and Scientist'. C/U of a mouse on her shoe. A woman in a white fur hat and mittens looks at a white rabbit in a cage.

    Another shot of the middle-aged woman reading the mouse book; cut to C/U of the squeaker crawling up her leg. Two women in fur hats and accessories pet a guinea pig. A small girl with a teddy bear strokes a white rabbit. General view of people standing by cages at the show. C/U of the mouse disappearing up the leg and under the skirt of the middle-aged woman. C/U of her face as she reacts - not too strongly. Maybe she doesn't mind.
