  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unknown or unclear.

    Sir Philip Warter at Buckingham Palace, London.

    L/S of Buckingham Palace with tulips growing in foreground and traffic passing. M/S of crowds watching as personalities arrive for some kind of event or garden party. Several shots of unidentified guests arriving in formal clothes. Guards march past sentry. Sir Philip Warter and his party arrive and pose for camera. They go inside the Palace Gates as more guests arrive.

    C/U of Royal Coat of Arms on Palace gates; pan down to back view of people looking through railing. M/S of the Palace with cars passing in foreground. Shots of people waiting outside to see the guests arriving. M/S pan down from lamp to people walking out of Palace Gates. More shots of Warter and party posing. Several shots tilting from the shoes up to the heads of the ladies - could be showing the 'New Look' style of long dresses? The effect is unintentionally comical! C/Us of Warter's party - man on left looks rather gormless, though I'm sure he is a very nice person.

    Cataloguer's note: without being offensive, would be good to illustrate toffs!
