• Short Summary

    Horses are bought on the 'never-never' at William Foyle's stables in Wickford, Essex.

  • Description

    High angle L/S of a row of cars waiting to be sold; C/U of the price on a car windscreen; '£775 / Low Mileage, Heater, Exceptional Condition, H.P. Terms, Part Exchanges'; another is priced at £155. M/S of people looking at small planes to buy; commentator talks of this being the age of H.P. (hire purchase).

    C/U of a sign saying 'Horses on H.P. Terms! Any horse taken in part exchange'. Two young girls in riding gear and a man (presumably their father) are shown various horses at these stables in Wickford, Essex; one of the girls shakes her head as a dark horse's teeth are examined.

    A groom climbs onto a horse and rides it around the paddock as the customers and dealer William Foyle watch. The horse takes some jumps and the older girl nods her approval; she then has a go on the horse.

    William Foyle and the girls' father walk over to a desk; C/U of William filling out a Hire Purchase Proposal Form. He folds the form up and gives it to the father.

    M/S of the girl still riding around the paddock.

    Note: On file is a news cutting from the Daily Mirror about William Foyle's horses on H.P. sales. Cameraman's notes on file list names as Susan Revering (sp?) is older girl buying a horse; Jennifer Brookes is the younger girl, and Malcolm Cumberline (sp? Chamberlain?) is the groom.
