  • Short Summary

    Mute version of HEADNOTES story plus extra footage of a woman applying liquid stockings.

  • Description

    No soundtrack for this item.

    Titles read: "HEADNOTES!"

    First part of this item is mute version of first part of HEADNOTES - see separate record for details. Story shows hairstyles designed to be worn with military hats.

    What follows is excellent footage of a woman applying some 'liquid stockings' to her legs. Sequences starts with brief shot of two hand puppets. M/S of 2 pairs of stockings lying on a table. A woman picks them up and tosses them away; fade into same shot, with several pots of dark cream on the table. A pretty girl looks coyly at the pots. We then see a woman mix some of the potion with some water in her hands and apply it to one of her legs. She is sitting at a dressing table and wearing a satin robe.

    C/U of a girl's legs; she is wearing shorts and fabulous wedge-heeled sandals (shot is probably showing that the 'stocking cream' can be used as a fake tan). Great C/U of a woman's lower legs as she draws a line up the back of one of them to look like the seam of a stocking (she is wearing court shoes and we can see the hem of her dress). C/U of the woman using the same pencil on her eyebrows. M/Ss of woman's legs - perhaps comparing the liquid stockings with the real thing. This is probably duplicate footage from NSP 221 - PAINTED STOCKINGS - see separate record on *PM1290*.

    This is brilliant footage showing how to apply liquid stockings!

    Followed by brief shot of exterior of a large building and M/S of men working in a foundry (?).
