  • Short Summary

    Wealthy woman shows off and plays with her pet cheetah.

  • Description

    "Why stop short at pet cats and dogs? Why not a sweet little African cheeta (sic) - about 3 feet long?" M/S of a woman standing in a garden with a cheetah on a lead - its name is presumably Sheba. The woman has some leopard (or possibly cheetah!) skin thrown around her neck. The cheetah lays down on the ground and the woman teases it with the lead. M/S of the cheetah lying down.

    "But, it's a wee bit suspicious about mascots..." The woman teases it with a stuffed toy - possibly supposed to be a panther or other big cat. The cheetah is sitting in a car - it rubs its face against the toy cat - cute. M/S of the woman, her mascot and her cheetah sitting in the car. The woman smiles at the camera and makes to drive off.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 592.

    Safety print exists - probably to be found on the "Friends of Fashion" reel.
