High Speed Artist (1966)
A lovely dark haired girl sits for an artist – its her father, Lionel Burleigh, who is so prolific he’s been called a high speed artist. C/U of him working with brush and paint. He paints his wife and he paints a scene on a wall (footage is speeded up to make him look even faster – SL). He not only paints – he has seven sons and two daughters! We see his paintings on the wall. Then Lionel is seen in the street going into the galleries. Inside, there is an exhibition of his one man show on display. People admire the paintings.
Note : Didn’t see anyone buy one – and all those children to feed ! See also CP 586 Cuts.
