  • Short Summary

    Lovely film showing fun at the beach and on the promenade in Deauville.

  • Description

    Note on the title card reads "with an accent on the dough".

    Shots of a very crowded beach at Deauville. There are striped changing huts and people are almost all fully dressed. Three girls in bathing suits sit around a fountain. Four women and two men share a drink and a laugh at a cafe in the open air. Nice shots. Close up of woman taking a cigarette out of a packet and smoking it. A family rides horses on the beach. A tractor takes a trailer of children for a ride across the sand. A Pathe cameraman is visible behind the driver. C/U of children in the trailer. Children try to persuade a dog to go into the sea. A woman in an amazing sequinned bathing suit poses in a boat with a dog in a striped T-shirt (truly!)

    Women pose in their bathing suits - some have Ostrich feather parasols. A woman does bodybuilding exercises on the sand. Shot of a group of women relaxing in deck-chairs and on the sand. A man in a fez tries to persuade a woman to buy jewellery.

    Safety print exists.

    Note: nicely shot holiday footage - fun at the beach. Some of the girls look very chic especially the woman in the sequinned swimsuit.
