Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: "GET FIT FOR WAR - US WOMEN'S NEW SLOGAN."

    United States of America.

    Various shots of American women in white playsuits doing formation exercises in a gymnasium. Most are quite young, but ages seem to range from young teenage to middle-aged. At one point the women roll back and forth on their bottoms - commentator says "Roll on sweet Harriet - think of those roses on your cheeks"! The session ends with the women 'walking' along the floor on their bottoms and flapping their thighs against the floor - it sounds like an army marching along.

    Note: duplicate item with less cheeky commentary and no natural sound for 'bottom walking' shots is in 42/26 Dublin issue - FIT AND FAIR - see separate record for details.
