Description

This film is a comedic short about a couple as they get ready to go out for an evening.  It is based on the Mackintosh's Rewards chocolates adverts which ran in the late 1960s.     

Featuring Antonio Akrill and Joan Lawson, the film opens with the couple meeting in the living room.  The woman leaves the man seated as she goes to put on the finishing touches for their night out.  Her date then prepares a present for her, a box of chocolates out of which he eats one to make room for the larger gift, a diamond necklace.  The story ends with a huge toilet flush to signal the end of the woman getting ready.
