    Begins with a great shot of a girl in swimsuit and high heels playing darts on a rooftop - two other glamour girls watch her technique.

Low angle shot of the girls who get up and walk towards a corner of the roof for a cigarette. Nice M/S of two of the girls - Jillian Larraby and Carole Logan. C/U of one of the girls holding a lighter for the other two to use.

    M/S of the male darts player placing two cigarettes in a stand then shoots darts at them from his mouth, knocking them off. Good C/U of the man - Ronald Tomlinson (?) also known as Rondart (?) learnt this technique from his father who lost his arms in the First World War. Good C/Us of the girls looking glamorous. M/S of one of the girls (Ellyn Brown?) sitting in a chair with a dart board above her. Rondart places a dart in a special holder placed on top of her head. C/U of her looking very apprehensive. Rondart fires out a dart and the cigarette is knocked off. M/S of the girls applauding. The chorus girl is persuaded again to assist Rondart. She stands in front of the dart board holding a balloon. Nice C/U of her smiling. Rondart fires a dart from his mouth and it explodes.
