Fitting Faces (in the Ephemeral section of Open Video Project. Also, film #522 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Hollywood]

This Paramount short features Mary Jones, who completely ruins her beauty routine by donning a pair of eyeglasses. A makeup artist shows her how to choose frames according to face shape, leaving her with three new pairs of glasses that are almost identical to her old glasses. We also get to see some interesting industrial footage of optical lenses being made. An average featurette with an industrial feel.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
