Synopsis

A celebration of desire filmed among the ruins of the Crystal Palace terraces. "A mid-summer afternoon daydream, in which a fat fairy godmother liberates the odd lovelorn in a public park to the wrath of a Minister of Public Behaviour.' NB: Shows the Crystal colonnade and the bandstand (both later demolished), the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Memorial, and much of the statuary which was auctioned off five years later.
