  • Description

    No title.

    Animation. A drawing of a woman of "75 years ago" appears before our eyes - she is wearing a very large skirt and holding a parasol. An outfit of "50 years ago" is then illustrated, then 1 year ago. A woman stands with a large coat sticking out in front of her, a cigarette in her mouth and a floppy hat on her head. Title reads: The "Flapper". The woman turns to face the camera. "Today" is represented by a more sophisticated outfit - a long slim coat with fur trim and a serious hat. The woman slinks off. The "Flapper" walks past a man who turns around as she passes and looks at her legs. Speech bubble appears above his head: "Aint Nature Grand!" Then "Today's" woman passes the man and his reaction is: "Not So Good!"
