  • Short Summary

    Well dressed folk in their Sunday best are seen at leisure in Hyde Park.

  • Description

    Intertitle reads: "Poor is the town with no Park or Parade to brighten its life. In London, Eve's Mecca is Hyde Park, where wayward fashion displays its latest charms - "

    Various shots of large numbers of women walking in the park, sitting on chairs listening to a band (presumably). C/U of detail on the bottom of a skirt - appliqued swirls. M/S of a dapper couple sitting on chairs and laughing. C/U of another smart couple. Woman in a fringed shawl and ostrich feather hat turns and smiles at the camera. M/Ss of various well dressed women, friends sitting together and chatting. End intertitles read: ""By the way, Ladies, have you sent in your suggested alternative title for "Eve's Film Review"? "Don't forget, £50 is offered - so send in entries (unlimited) to Pathe's Wardour Street, London, now. Last date August 4th."

    Note: It seems to me that the women featured in this item are ordinary members of the public rather than models.

    See: "Eve's Film Review Alternative Title Competition Result."

    Two safety prints exist - check for best quality. Original decomposed and destroyed.
