  • Short Summary

    Tropical plants in a botanical gardens - cute shot of a dog sitting in the middle of large water lily leaf.

  • Description

    Victoria Regia is the queen of all Water Lilies, found in the far backwaters of the Amazon.

    Interior of a hothouse - probably at Kew Gardens, where several people look at the extremely large Water Lilies. C/U of the leaves of the Water Lilies. C/U of the flower. Dissolve into wider shot showing the pool of Water Lilies with a sign which gives the Latin name for the plant.

    "A safe harbour for doggie" reads an intertitle. C/U of a dog sitting on a piece of wood on one of the large leaves. Funny! Very short story - possibly incomplete.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 428.

    Safety print only. Digibeta transfer is rather dark.
