This bizarre film from 1930 shows actors from the Bournemouth Amateur Film Society demonstrating their wildy eccentric and slightly naughty performances before the camera. The scene the shifts to Boscombe beach where a comic scenario is being enacted - with lots of kissing, larceny, drunkenness and violence. This is a plot where the hero gets his comeuppance and the villain gets the girl. Lastly, we see the Society arriving at a country residence and posing for the camera.
