  • Short Summary

    Lots of women have fun posing in old fashioned clothes from the 1870s.

  • Description

    "Talking about modes, what about Grannie's "has beens?"

    Panning shot of women dressed in old fashioned outfits - presumably of the 1870s. The women chat to each other and smile at the camera. "Imagine hugging Grandma in these sleeves!" C/U of a woman wearing a dress with large puffy sleeves. She turns to show off to the camera. "And sitting on a tack, those days, was a mere trifle - when you had a bustle!" Camera tilts up to show woman in a dress which features a large bustle. A dresser just out of shot plumps up her bustle! The woman with the large sleeves turns and poses, the other women laugh. The women are all middle aged or elderly - not svelte young models. C/U of one of the old fashioned hats.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 508?

    This item may have originally be stored in another can (UN3K?) - discovered in 1999. Have created new cans for these "orphan items" - EP312 and EP313.
