• Short Summary

    Beauty queen Ingrid Mills and actor Naunton Wayne celebrate silkworms' birthday in Kent.

  • Description

    Lullingstone Castle, Kent.

    Zoo keepers lead a camel, a llama and two ponies across a green. South African Beauty Queen Ingrid Mills stands beside actor Naunton Wayne and is presented with a bouquet of flowers. They are at the castle with a crowd of people to celebrate the 21st birthday of Lady Hart Dyke's Silkworms.

    The animals are led towards a large birthday cake. Several shots of Nauton and Ingrid cutting the birthday cake, feeding some to the animals (camel likes it, llama won't touch it). There is a basket of silkworm cocoons on the table beside the cake. Ingrid picks up a cocoon and shakes it.

    A small monkey is seen on the back of a pony. C/U of a silkworm on the birthday cake; Ingrid picks it up. The monkey jumps down and sits on the cake, eating.

    Cutting and correspondence on file.
