A Joe Noble item about the nose, big or small, and its role in the body.
C/U's of a woman's eye, ear, mouth and hair. C/U of her nose, the woman powders it. Joe Noble sketches Grecian and Roman noses, as well as bulbous and turned up noses. Various shots of Vanity Fair cartoons with noses of all shapes and sizes. A girl smells a bunch of flowers and a man smells alcohol in a glass, but the commentator says the primary aim of the nose is to help the sense of taste. M/S as nurse gives medicine to Joe Noble and he holds his nose. Goes on to say how often women powder their noses.
