  • Short Summary

    A wedding in Africa is compared to one in Mayfair.

  • Description

    "There's just as much bother over Miss Zulu's wedding in Africa, as in the smartest of Mayfair alliances."

    High angle L/S of a group of tribes-people standing on a hill. Various shots of the bride being prepared. The bride is a little bit camera shy. A procession of men arrive for the wedding. "Then a sedate dance around - (and mind your neighbour doesn't tickle you in the ribs - with a spear!)" Various shots of the tribes people walking in a procession carrying traditional shields. Men stand on a hillside striking traditional poses.

    "Not quite this latest kind of wedding attire, girls, but then the climate's a bit different, too!" M/S of a Western bride with two young bridesmaids and two maids of honour. Bride walks towards the camera, dissolve to another bride who begins to walk towards the camera.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 473.
