    Bizarre exercise contraption - doesn't look very good for your back!

  • Description

    ON 380 originally EP 141

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Roll up, roll down, and roll away - all that superfluous tissue."

    C/U of an elderly man demonstrating a highly bizarre exercise contraption. It is rather like a modified mangle! It really looks bad for his back. He pulls himself backwards and forwards across a roller - nutty! At one point he is upside down waving his legs around in the air. An eccentric inventor.

    Probably Eve's Film Review or Pathe Pictorial item.
