• Short Summary

    Protective wall, American place names in England and a girl using her feet for everyday tasks.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Would you believe it? Queer things the World over. No. 15".

    Various locations of events.

    In France we see a wall beside a road, protecting traffic from a gorge below. A lorry drives towards the wall and 'bounces' off again, with the wall staying intact.

    Shots of road signs near Newcastle (England), pointing to New York, North Shields, Washington, Bunker Hill and Philadelphia.

    In Australia we see a young woman, unable to use her arms and hands through illness, who has learned to use her feet and toes to do everyday things. She opens a wicker basket and takes out some knitting which she does with her feet. She then takes some playing cards and puts them in order with her toes. C/U of a drawing of a dog that the girl has done with her feet. With her toes she writes in pencil on the pad 'HE keeps his tail UP".
