  • Short Summary

    A bevy of bathing beauties frolic in the waves at the beach.

  • Description

    "Everybody's on the lookout nowadays for reducing exercises - even if you do them by correspondence! These sort of exercises, however, take hard work - "

    L/S of a dozen women running down some steps towards a beach. They are dressed in swimsuits. High angle shot of the girls doing a high kick routine on the promenade. "Thirty minutes every day. Keeps Miss Adipose away!" (shot missing here I think).

    "Why on earth do they say "Sad sea-waves"? - when they see this - " The girls stand on a breakwater and wave at the camera as the waves crash in. The girls jump down and run towards the camera. "- and this." One of the girls does some cartwheels in the waves. We see this again in slow motion. "Pebbles on the Beach - and not so slow as this - !" The girls hold hands and frolic in the waves as they crash in. The girls fall over, do headstands and generally have fun in the waves.
