• Short Summary

    Miss Resista (Resister ?) can put on weight at will using mind over matter.

  • Description

    MISS RESISTA. With her amazing examples of altering her weight at will.

    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    M/S as Miss Resista walks onto the set, a man with her says she weighs 7 stone 2 lbs but can put on weight through mind over matter. He brings on boxer Jack Bloomfield who lifts her easily. The man tells her to put on weight, she looks just the same but Jack cannot lift her up.

    M/S of wrestler Jim Greggley (?) who lifts her at her normal weight, she puts on a bit and he still lifts her but he can't do it after she has put more on. Various shots as he lifts her and she puts weight on in mid-air so he has to drop her. Jack laughs. M/S as a young busboy walks through and picks her up easily before carrying her off.

    Cataloguer's note: alternative spelling for search purposes - Miss Resister
