  • Short Summary

    Alphonse Berg - the dress designer - rustles up a frock for his wife in two minutes.

  • Description

    Intertitle reads: "You know that horrid feeling when you haven't anything nice to wear - worth mentioning? and hubby rushes in and wonders why you aren't ready to be off-"

    Shot which follows shows man rushing into wife's boudoir to find her in her dressing gown preening her hair. M. Alphonse Berg - the famous fashion designer - makes his wife a dress on the spot. He takes off her dressing gown and stands her on a box in the middle of the room. She stands with hands above her head whilst Alphonse drapes a long piece of material around her body. He continues to drape and pin and creates a frock in two minutes. The wife admires herself in a mirror. Alphonse puts a hat on her head, hands her a parasol and handbag, puts his hat on and they leave. The dress is then seen in Regent Street as they walk down the street together.

    Was an Eve's Film Review item - issue unknown.
