  • Short Summary

    A very young girl is shown swimming and diving.

  • Description

    "Meet Marjorie Best - just 2 and a half years of age, but with the courage of a twenty-year old -" The little girl is dangled by the arms off the edge of a swimming pool then dropped in. She starts swimming - she has arm bands or similar floats. Various shots of Marjorie as she swims. She stops and puts her head back - she looks quite cute.

    A man (her father?) helps her out of the pool. She stands on the pool edge and applauds. "Marjorie has her own way of diving - but then she's only two-and-a-half!" Marjorie walks out to the end of the diving board and steps off. A crowd of people watch from the edge of the pool - it looks like a cold day! Father helps her out of the pool.
