  • Short Summary

    A day at the beach for some chorus girls - high kicks, paddling and cartwheels on the sand.

  • Description

    Chorus girls from the New Palladium Revue. "First, of course, the "pebbles" have to land on the beach - " Low angle of large number of chorus girls in day wear running down a hill towards the camera. They hold hands. "The 'Sky High' girls they called themselves (At any rate they nearly "high-kicked" the sky.)" L/S of a row of the girls doing high kicks on the beach. It doesn't look too warm, they are wearing jumpers and cloche hats. "Ozone is so bracing - " L/S of the girls kicking away. They then hop on one leg, twirling the other around in the air. M/S of four of the girls doing high kicks - a woman in the foreground may be the choreographer. They do the splits. The choreographer beats time.

    Some of the girls have a paddle. A few are brave enough to actually swim! Some of the girls do cartwheels on the beach. "The slow-camera took a longer look - " Slow motion footage of a couple of the girls doing cartwheels and then dancing - jumping up into the air. Slow motion footage of a line of the girls doing high kicks. "A new kind of "jumper." One of the girls jumps down from the hillside. "But, no "pebbles" on any beach ever danced to the tune of the waves like these experts did - " High angle shot of the chorus line on the beach dancing with a man in an overcoat marking time.

    Probably an Eve's Film Review item - issue number unknown.

    This item may have originally be stored in another can - discovered in 1999. No markings on leader as to where was originally stored. Have created new cans for these "orphan items" - EP312 and EP313.
