  • Short Summary

    A woman uses a new pruning device then takes a bite from an apple.

  • Description

    Intertitles together at head of film, images follow.

    Intertitles read: "Somehow, Eve always did like apples." "But only through the labour saving "Plucca" Pruner, made by the Elliott Pruner Co., 19, Regent St., London, will she have a plentiful supply next year". Shots of woman pruning a small tree. C/U of woman's hand pointing to the twig she will snip. Shots of her pruning (some shots spliced in upside down through error rather than design I assume). Shot of woman picking apple from a tree. C/U of her eating the apple.

    Rare example of a piece of direct advertising in Eve's Film Review.
