A parade of women in formal and everyday dresses from bygone eras march past the camera. A shot of several women in old-fashioned long dresses stand spaced apart on a lawn. From behind them step younger women in modern dresses cut up to the knee. They step in front of the older women. A funny scene with one older woman in the old-fashioned dress and a young, modern woman. The younger one smokes a cigarette while the older one takes it from her mouth and throws it to the ground. They both giggle. This is great fashion/feminism footage.
