• Short Summary

    We take a trip to Le Touquet with some Windmill Theatre showgirls.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Our flying Reporter No. 1".

    Croydon, Surrey and Le Touquet, France.

    Various shots of showgirls from the Windmill Theatre boarding an Imperial Airways plane called 'Hengist'. Aerial shots from the plane as we fly above the clouds. The girls check their make-up. Shots of Le Touquet from the plane.

    The girls come down off the plane and say goodbye to the bearded Captain OP Jones of the airline. On the beach at Le Touquet we see several shots of the girls in swimsuits having fun - playing with a ball and leapfrogging over each other.

    The girls move on to the pool. They splash about, throw their arms around the necks of the nearest males and sip drinks - commentator says "Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder". The girls pose among the concrete structures of the swimming pool.
