  • Short Summary

    Lovely film showing girls getting the benefits of life in the open air - camping, cycling and cooking.

  • Description

    "Nature is a good colour-giver, and girls today have many ways of acquiring Mother Nature's complexion. One of the most popular is camping out - "

    M/S of a group of young girls sleeping outside a tent on the ground in front of some huts. Other girls appear with cups of tea to wake them up. The girls all spring up and take the cups of tea. They are possibly girl guides or brownies on a camping holiday - some of them wear the same white blouse with black scarf outfit.

    "Nothing in the rouge line can equal cold-water and an early "scrub". Woman walks towards the camera carrying two buckets of water on a wooden yoke balanced on her shoulders. M/S of the girls standing at a wooden table in the open air scrubbing their faces. One girl gets her face dunked in the basin of water in front of her.

    "And after that - food - " M/S of girls cooking on an outdoor stove. Girl in foreground pours water into a little teapot. " - a bit of fun - " Girls stand in a line bent over touching the ground and other girls leapfrog over them. "And heigh - ho! For the open road!" M/S of the girls on bicycles riding across the grass. M/S of the girls cycling along - filmed from a moving vehicle.

    "But, even girls like refreshments - " M/S of the girls crowded together sitting on a grassy verge drinking cups of tea. "Then the long trail for home - (and possibly the pictures.)" M/S of the girls lifting their bikes over a fence. Another moving shot of the girls cycling along.
