• Short Summary

    Quirky item showing woman riding a unicycle - dog under one arm, handbag on the other!

  • Description

    "We've heard a lot about one-way traffic... here's a little French girl who amuses Paris on her one-wheel shopping expeditions." Low angle of a young woman riding a unicycle towards the camera. She rides right up to the camera - the screen is filled with her legs. M/S of the girl who cycles along holding a little doggie under her arm! Very cute. She holds one arm out for balance, over which is hooked a little handbag. C/U of her feet. The camera follows her as she rides along. A couple of men walk alongside trying to keep up. "Perhaps there's a faint Scotch complex here." Crowds line the street as she cycles up to a market stall, gives a woman some money, takes a lettuce (or something similar) and cycles off. L/S of the women riding down a wide street, traffic all around her. Cute.

    Paperwork currently missing for this issue - therefore no music cue information.
