  • Short Summary

    Icelandic girls perform a graceful exercise routine.

  • Description

    No title. Gaggle of girls pose for the camera wearing tunics and military style caps. Closer view, panning shot. The girls smile and laugh. M/S of the girls (without caps now) performing an exercise routine in the open air. Very "health and beauty".

    "In spite of their cold-titled island, Iceland girls are just as warm-hearted, and graceful as any Southern Eves." The girls continue with their graceful exercise routine which includes stretches and dance moves. "Balance and time - perfect. (and the girls are easy to look at!)" More bending and stretching. The girls then walk along in a line, following the women at the front who carries the Icelandic flag.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 561.

    Note: paper records state that these women are skaters but we do not see them on skates.
