  • Description

    Titles read: "CINEVIEWS IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    At an unidentified location, we see a cow wearing rubber boots to protect against foot diseases such as Laminitis and canker. The boots also keep dressings in position and prevent infection. The cow is led by a man - the cow looks a little self-conscious and walks oddly in her bootees.

    Two little baby foxes are seen scampering around in a forest and exploring the undergrowth - they are extremely cute! Commentator talks of the breeding of foxes being a very considerable industry in Europe, and says it is by no means easy to satisfy the demands of huntsmen and furriers. (Unidentified location of events.)

    Near Paris, France, we see a 'Midget Village' where midget men and women are seen buying chocolates, posting letters, playing pool, making beds and so on. A midget policeman shakes hands with a full-sized policeman. A midget steals a salami from a table and gives it to his girlfriend. Several shots of midget couples smooching in doorways; the midget policeman and his girl try to find a free spot to kiss and cuddle in.
