OUT TAKES / CUTS FROM CP 614 - reel 2 of 2 - GROWING AND EATING (aka MUSHROOMS), SNAKE AND BABY BATH TIME and DOLPHINS ON THE MOVE
Cuts (rushes, out takes) for stories featured in Colour Pictorial - CP 614. The original stories are on Pathe Master tape *PM0379*.

Cuts for story GROWING AND EATING (aka MUSHROOMS) in CP 614. Similar footage to the cut story; mushrooms seen in boxes, moving along conveyor belts in the packing factory; mushrooms being picked from the growing beds. Several shots of the mushroom party food; people eating mushroom nibbles at the party. More shots in the laboratory of mushroom seeds being germinated.

Cuts for story SNAKE AND BABY BATH TIME in CP 614. All different footage to the cut story. Extremely bizarre sequence shows exotic dancer Julie Mendez watching Rolf Harris on a black and white television with her snake, Lulu. In Julie's home we see a long draught excluder snake on the arm of a sofa; several pictures of Julie in cabaret costume as 'Exotic Snake Charmer'. We then see Julie and Lulu in a demonstration of their cabaret act; Julie in a spangled scanty bikini costume holds Lulu and wiggles about, grinding her hips as the snake slithers between her legs and around her waist. Obviously, too suggestive to make it into the Colour Pic proper. In a pub, Julie drinks a glass of red wine (or sherry), and holds a glass of water (or gin? Vodka?!) for Lulu to sip. A man at the bar chats to a barmaid while they drink, then feigns surprise as he spots Lulu; he causes a fuss and is told to leave by the landlord. C/U of Lulu sinking her head in the glass of water then blowing water bubbles.

Cuts for story DOLPHINS ON THE MOVE in CP 614. Similar footage to cut story as the dolphins are caught in a net in their original pool and put into a cradle for transportation, then lowered into their new pool.
