• Short Summary

    Leonard Ware has job of erasing graffiti on posters on Tube.

  • Description

    Title reads: "Meet the Rubber Man".

    London.

    M/S of London underground official Leonard Ware walking along pedestrian tunnel. He notices some graffiti on an advertising poster. C/U of selection of rubbers (erasers) in his hand. He rubs out the pencil scrawlings. C/U of Mr. W. rubbing out a cartoon "chad" on poster.

    Various shots of Mr. W. meticulously erasing doodles and graffiti on posters around London Underground. Lift opens and Underground station master shows Mr. W. a defaced poster. Most of the graffiti is quite mild, nothing rude - black out teeth, moustaches, cigarettes and slightly saucy jokes.

    None of the stations featured are named in commentary, although we do see sign for Mornington Crescent.
