Cut to the coast of Norway. Night. Tense music. Shots of big
coastal guns, cliff-top fortifications.
Build up for abut ten seconds. Cut to a cliff top looking out
to sea. A grappling hook comes over and sticks in, then another, and
another. Whispered voices, music, the tension rises as the rope is
tightened. Then over the top comes a German, head blackened and
camouflaged. Then others climb over; they are wearing haloes, pink
tutus, jackboots, wands. They charge over. Stock film of guns
Voice Over: Yes! Coming to this cinema soon! (cut to
stock film of a destroyer in the midst of a pitched sea-battle;
victory-at-sea music) The tender compassionate story of one
man's love for another man in drag. (cut to a sailor on a ship in
rough sea; he calls to the captain who is in an evening gown)
THRILL! to the excitement of a night emission over Germany.
Cut to stock shots of bombers on a night raid. Cut to interior
of a bomber. Various shots of pilot and navigator. There is flak
outside and explosions occasionally light up the cabin
Voice Over: When the pilot, Jennifer (shot of the
pilot) has to choose between her secret love for Louis, (shot
of the navigator) the hot-bloodedly bi-sexual navigator and
Andy, (shot of the rear gunner) the rear gunner, who, though
quite assertive with girls, tends to take the submissive role in his
relationships with men. (cut to close up of gritty pipe-smoking
RAF top brass) And sensational Mexican starlet, Rosetta Nixon,
plays the head of bomber command, (insert of WAAF) whose
passion for sea-birds ends in tragedy. (cut to montage of war
footage, explosions, guns firing, etc.) With Ginger, as the
half-man, half-woman, parrot whose unnatural instincts brought
forbidden love in the aviary. And Roger as Pip, the half-parrot,
half-man, half-woman, three-quarter badger, ex-bigamist negro
preacher, for whom banjo-playing was very difficult, and he never
mastered it although he took several courses and went to banjo
college ... er ... and everything ... don't miss it!
During this last lot are superimposed in quick succession the
following captions: `Drama' `Suspense' `Thrills' `Marquetry'
`Adventures' `Don't miss it' `Coming to your cinema soon'
Voice Over: Coming to your cinema soon! (cut to an
Indian restaurant) Only five minutes from this restaurant! But
now! (Cut to the nude organist and `It's' man )
It's Man: It's ...
At the end of the title cut to to tramps exactly as at the
beginning of the show.
