• Short Summary

    Girls running round a racetrack at normal speed and slow-motion - some wear trousers before the race!

  • Description

    (Pathetone main titles.)
    Full titles read: "Girls - fast & slow. (And slowed!)" (new title) "The girls of the New Brigade are partial to trousers, anyway..."

    Location of events unknown.

    M/S of a group of giggling girls in trousers and sportswear, walking towards a sports ground.

    Intertitle reads: "Sometimes they're a bit too speedy..."
    M/S of the girls on their marks, ready for a running race; the gun goes off, they start off, but it's a false start and they go back to the starting line.

    Intertitle reads: "One bad start deserves another (good one)."
    M/S of the girls starting off and running in a short race.

    Intertitle reads: "A study in expressions."
    Various slow-motion shots of the girls running in the race.

    Intertitle reads: "Just 220 yards to go and no 'bus in sight -".
    M/S of the girls coming over the finishing line. Slow-motion closer shot of the same (a brass band in the background is playing! Music while you run...).

    Intertitle reads: "Skirts - 'shorts' - 'longs' - take your choice...."
    M/S panning across a line of laughing women, all wearing different kinds of sports gear.
