Title: A Frandean Film

Title: Photo Cine Fair

The opening view is taken at a photographic trade fair, where models are used in various promotions for products and also as photo opportunities for visitors.

Two models pose on the bonnet of an E-type Jaguar sports car as photographers gather round. One of the models holds a camera with a telephoto lens.

A blonde haired model dressed in a pink mini dress poses on set. She changes position frequently, presumably by request from the photographers present.

A model in a gold dress poses solo at first and is then joined by a companion who uses a tin bath as a prop!

A change of scene as models pose in traditional costumes, in front of a black and white photographic backdrop. One of the models drinks a glass of champagne.

Two models in swimsuits pose with a small sailing dinghy as a prop. A model in a purple swimsuit sits in a chair in more subdued lighting.

The German airline Lufthansa provides a model on their stand who is wearing a white skirt suit, which may be a promotion for, not only the airline, but also a new uniform for their air stewards. Lufthansa posters decorate the background wall, as does a large photo of an airport runway.

Various models pose in fashionable mini and maxi outfits in a variety of different stage sets. One outfit is a glamorous slinky catsuit. A final 'glamour' model poses in a risqué black feather bikini.

More models in a variety of bikinis pose together on a the mock up deck of the SS Canberra [a state of the art cruise ship at the time]. A ship's steward or captain appears 'on deck' while one of the girls pretends to sunbathe.
