Summary
NoS Summary - Miss Ida Katherena, women’s champion punch-ball beater does her stuff.
British Pathe synopsis: "Eve’s on the track of the punch-ball record - Miss Ida Kathrena holds the world’s record for ladies by keeping one on the move for 12 hours." C/U of punch ball taking a pounding. C/U of the woman giving it a beating. L/S of Ida inside a special boxing booth built, no doubt, in the Pathe studio. Slow motion footage of Ida first elbowing then punching the punch-ball. "Tea-time didn’t stop her - " She is served with tea on a tray and carries on punching. She sips from her cup of tea, then has a biscuit. "Nor Lady Nicotine - " She lights and smokes a cigarette whilst punching the ball. She looks very nonchalant. "Punch-Ball exercise keeps you slim", says Miss Kathrena, "and you needn’t stop even to powder your nose." We see Ida powdering her nose and combing her hair whilst punching the ball.
