  • Short Summary

    Quirky piece about a woman who makes money by removing specks of dust from people's eyes.

  • Description

    C/U of a man emerging from a doorway. He adjusts his hat and steps out into the street. He wipes his eye - he has a speck of dust in his eye. "You, of course, must be on the look-out, the same as Cinder Ella."

    M/S of a woman standing on a street corner. She wears a big coat and cloche hat. A woman passes then the man seen earlier. She speaks to him. C/U of the woman's hands as she takes a piece of cotton wool from a box she has in her pocket. "Do the job well." She rolls the cotton into a point then dabs it into the gentleman's eye. "And get the money C.O.D. (Cinders on Delivery)." They have a little chat and he hands her some money. Bizarre! Very short - incomplete story (but cute!)

    Note: This is possibly one of the"Walter Futter's Curiosities" in the Eve Pic collection - American films which it appears Pathe bought then retitled for use in the U.K. This might also be an extract from the Walter Futter film "Back Home".
