  • Short Summary

    New fashions for pillion girls - suitable wear for those on the back of motorbikes.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "We all know the "Pillion Girl". Here's her latest adornment - the pillion-scarf. ("Tam" and scarf combined)."

    M/S of a woman wearing a great outfit. Striped sweater, pleated skirt and striped hat and scarf. A man sits on a motorcycle in the background. The woman passes the scarf around her neck we then see her face and upper body in C/U. The camera tilts down to show her whole outfit. Camera stops on her feet. Cute little black and white shoes with ankle socks. M/S of the woman and her biker friend. "With her sports socks (or anklets) of different designs, Miss Pillion Rider is ready for "that outdoor urge." L/S of the woman jumping onto the back of the motorbike. She sits on the back - side saddle. She waves. Moving shot of the two speeding along. As they pass the camera, the woman pulls her skirt down a little as it is riding up due to the speed of the bike.

    Note: nice jaunty striped outfit for this "flapper type".

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 357.

    Note: two EP091 reels exist. The other reel is made up of unedited material which may, or may not, have been destined for Eve's Film Review or Pathe Pictorial items.
