  • Short Summary

    Fabulous film of overweight policemen being vibrated in slimming belts!

  • Description

    "What would you do if the Regulations prohibited you exceeding 13 stone - and you were one of Uncle Sam's P.C.'s? Vibrate away?"

    C/U of a man who is lying down and being vibrated - we see his belly, chest and head. His flesh is wobbling and he laughs. C/U of a man being vibrated. He has strange stripes on his neck. Top shot of 7 policeman being vibrated. M/S of them shaking with thick rubber belts around their waists. Some men face forwards, the others backwards for a range of reducing shimmies.

    M/S of the men leaning forward into the belts as the vibrations continue. Low angle shot of a man's big belly and chest vibrating. He laughs.

    This is pretty funny stuff - good for illustrating men's health and diet issues. Good quirky shots from low angles.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 597.
