  • Short Summary

    Glamour girls in swimsuits give an elephant a bath then they have a game of croquet.

  • Description

    Rosie the elephant has a bath - all five tonnes of her.

    C/U of a woman in a bathing suit and hat using a massive file to give the elephant a pedicure. Two other women, also in swimwear, assist. The elephant stands up on her hind legs and the girls give her feet lots of attention. We see this in L/S and there is a large palm tree in the background so presume this is somewhere hot in the States. Rosie and the girls have a game of croquet. The elephant hits the balls with its trunk.

    Was originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 416.

    "presume this is somewhere hot in the States" - it's Miami Beach, Florida. Rosie the Elephant seen here was regularly used to promote the area, as the attached information will confirm.....
