  • Short Summary

    Japanese drag queen - or someone posing as one!

  • Description

    Subtitled: "A brief interruption from Japan."

    Introductory intertitle reads: "They have their quick-change folk in old Nippon - here's a gentleman to whom changing into a woman is but a brief breather in his day's work -" M/S of a Japanese man kneeling down on a podium in front of a curtain. He has two drawers of clothes beside him.

    He puts on various items of clothing and turns himself into a Geisha Girl - a Japanese Drag Queen! He holds up a fan and purses his lips. Very short item so presumably incomplete.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 481.
