  • Description

    Eve's Film Review visits Billy Merson at his home.

    "Golf's one of my hobbies," said Billy as he trained to take it out of Colonel Bogey." M/S of Billy dressed in white and smoking taking shots against a practice net. "But the river's my chief attraction - anything with water in it always fascinates me ---" L/S of Billy and a female friend walking down the steps of a cute house on a riverbank. They are followed by two friends and when they get to the river's edge they wave at someone off screen. "Exercise? Why bless us we live on it ---" Shots of Billy and his friends jumping and diving off a board in their garden into the river. There is also a slide which everyone has a go on. C/U of Billy splashing around with his children (?) in the river. C/U of Billy in a cosy cardigan having a small sherry. He toasts the camera. End title reads: "And the same to you."

    Safety print exists - show print. Probably to be found in the "Stars as They Are" roll.
