• Short Summary

    Quirky item about what happens to human body when it walks, lots of girls in swimsuits.

  • Description

    Part of issue HOT DOGS.

    Pathe Studios, London.

    Drawing of a car. Various shots actress holding a driving wheel (car's missing because of petrol rationing!)

    Various shots of glamorous women in swimsuits walking about. Animated diagrams and factual titles are superimposed telling us all about human body's ability to walk. We see Joe Noble (of the "Pathe Brains Trust") filming the girls with special camera. The camera produces photographs that show movement of girls' bodies when walking.

    Various diagrams of middle ear. C/U of pinball machine (narrator compares machine in middle ear).

    Studio set of country pub. Three girls sit outside, one exclaims: "There's nothing like walking for a holiday!". A man sitting near them replies angrily: "Walking? Walking? I'm a postman!"

    Item is very quirky and light hearted.
