• Short Summary

    Girls prance about a field, then a 'living statue' poses as a modern Diana - quite funny!

  • Description

    Titles read: "POSTURE!"

    New Jersey, United States of America.

    Various shots of girls from a US academy in black swimsuits or leotards prancing about a field. They do some star jumps (not looking particularly graceful!), then run this way and that in lines, in what the commentator calls "the art of the graceful exit".

    A girl in a white swim hat, white bandeau top and snug shorts poses with a cut-out of a ram (?) as "a modern Diana, symbol of the grace and beauty that comes from ordered movement". This 'living statue' poses with a spear, then a tennis racket. She tosses the racket on the ground and poses with a lacrosse stick - it looks very funny!
