  • Short Summary

    A very young girl drives a baby car through French traffic.

  • Description

    "About the world's youngest regular auto driver - and a 1 H.P. car, too."

    C/U of a miniature car with a little girl sitting in the driving seat. She climbs out and lifts up the bonnet. C/U of her using a spanner to tighten something on the engine. Onlookers stand around and watch. She closes the bonnet and gets back into the car. On the side of the car it reads: "Automobiles d'Enfants." so this is presumably a French story. The girl drives off.

    High angle shot of the young girl (4 or 5 years old) driving along the street. Several men on bicycles follow closely behind. "Traffic has no terrors for her." We see her manoeuvring through a busy street. Various shots of her driving along. Very cute and quirky. M/S of the girl sitting in the car and shaking hands with another young girl - an admirer presumably.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 503.
