  • Short Summary

    The latest fashions are modelled at the race track - fabulous frocks and hats.

  • Description

    No title. M/S of group of women in their best frocks and hats at the races in Auteuil, Paris, France. C/U showing frill detail of dress and fox fur stole. It is a whole fox with head and brush.

    "Doubtless somewhere in the background, puzzled Adams were trying to forecast winners, but Eve was too busy devouring the latest Paris creations to notice." M/S of woman posing. C/U of rather sweet hat being modelled. Very glamorous woman models dress with another fox fur stole hanging from her shoulders. C/U of her close fitting hat with veil. She wears a string of pearls. Very 1920s! She turns to show the back of the hat.

    "Solomon in all his glory, never dreamed of such striking variety in Eve's wear." M/S of group of four women in nice frocks. M/S of woman standing alone in nice dress. C/U to show her lovely cloche hat. Another woman models a fabulous dress with diagonal stripes and a hat with a big floppy brim. Men admire her look as she turns for the camera.

    "Most of the skirts are longer - but we have yet to see how the feminine world adopts the added length." M/S of four women, three of whom have large fur or feather collars to their dresses. M/S of two very glamourous girls. One throws her fox around a bit! C/U of a hat being modelled. No shots of the horse racing.

    Date and issue number unknown but definitely Eve's Film Review rather than Pathe Pictorial.

    Note: flash-frame intertitles. Very nice hats and frocks - the women mostly seem to be unprofessional models. Date and issue number unknown.
