  • Short Summary

    University students put on a moviemaking skit as part of their rag week.

  • Description

    Full titles read: 'Students' "All Star" Cast - decides to assist British film revival as chief item in joyous charity "rag"!'

    Southampton, Hampshire.

    Several shots show University students acting out a moviemaking scene on a trailer used as a platform; a large crowd watches in the background. Two men in baggy plus-fours turn a camera as a man directs a couple acting out a scene - seems to be a lecherous cowboy trying to have his way with an unwilling girl.

    Good M/S of the manic director beside the cameraman, gesturing for more feeling, smoking a cigarette and tearing his hair out; the crowd look on behind them. Back on the trailer, a group of cowboys leap on the lech; one in furry chaps fights the rest to the ground.
