• Short Summary

    The eyes have it, new shop window models made in Surrey have moving eyes.

  • Description

    Molesey, Surrey.

    Item about a workshop in Molesey, near Hampton Court where shop models are made. We see the head of a model with the eyes moving left to right. Next we see a clay moulded head, with the sculptor artist, dressed in traditional clothes - white smock coat, beret, thin moustache (must be set up). He makes the finishing touches to the hair .

    We then see liquid poured into a cast or mould. A man lifts another cast and takes out the model bust, and examines it. Next we see a head being sprayed, and eyebrows are painted on. A man adjusts the wig of another model, which is seated on a chair. The model is dressed in a white leotard, He picks it up, still in its fixed sitting position and carries it to a display of models. He adjusts the clothing. We see the eyes moving again.

    Note: The man with glasses in this story is Winston Clark - see also CP 405 Cuts .
