  • Short Summary

    Women's athletics meet - hurdles and sprinting.

  • Description

    "Every day in every way Eve is getting faster (figuratively running). Nothing stops her onward rush - hurdles - " Various shots of women competing in a hurdling race. Looks like some kind of athletics meeting.

    "The 220-yard hustle - (what is this compared with the run for the last tram or bus?)" High angle shots of a sprinting race. "And when she's really in a hurry - this." Another sprinting race is shown. There is a black competitor. This may be a school sports day although the girls look like they are in their early 20s. It doesn't look like an athletics track.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 577.
