  • Description

    How she looks.

    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    C/U cartoon eye, a girls smells a bouquet of flowers. M/S of a cartoon tooth which pleads not to be taken out but is mercilessly plucked from the gum. M/S of a woman waiting for the chiropodist. Two girls throw a ball on the beach, Joe Noble looks through scientific instrument at a girl who waves at him. She stands on a platform and a scientific instrument sparks leaving her in her underwear.

    Various diagrams show the things women are made up of - 65 percent water, magnesia, phosphorous, iron, enough fat to make 7 cakes of soap, and 2 pounds of sugar. A diagram shows how much they all weigh. Also adds up how much they would cost in money. M/S of man seeing girl in double vision. Cartoons show how other people see her, she sees herself as an angel, her mother sees her as a little girl, father sees her as a man trap, husband sees her as an expensive commodity!
