    Good footage of the 'Ace of Spades Club' off the Kingston by-pass, Greater London.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Outer London's Club's and Cabarets 'The Ace of Spades' (Kingston- By-Pass, Greater London)."

    Animated sequence of several lines coming together to form a woman sat at her dressing table doing her hair. M/S's of young women walking in the countryside (or parks) wearing Edwardian dresses.

    Intertitle reads: "La Mode - as Befits Eve's mood - then changed -"

    More nice animated sequences of bells and hearts spinning around. They eventually stop to form shapely women in elegant dresses. L/S's of women from the Edwardian era attending a garden party at a large stately home.

    Intertitle reads: "Today, it would almost be a rest cure for Grandma if she only had to get ready for this kind of outing."

    L/S's and M/S's of young women parading around a swimming pool modelling bathing costumes at the 'Ace of Spades Club'. L/S of the 'Master of Sempill' jumping from a high diving board into the swimming pool to the cheers and laughter of the watching audience. L/S' of men and women frolicking with large inflatable turkeys in the pool !

    Intertitle reads: "And at 1 a.m. we meet the Southern Sisters, of Radio fame - in their distinctive harmony (at the piano EP Palmer)."

    Very good M/S's of the three Southern Sisters singing 'Don't mean a thing'.
