The entertainment value of this video is multifaceted. Mostly, it stems from how times have changed. In the 1950s a fashion show dedicated to swimming caps was somehow warranted. An adorable Punch & Judy booth setup – well, good luck finding Punch or Judy now. And passing up the valid excuse to send models in bikinis down a runway? Not likely to happen anymore.

Note the uniformly perfect models and, finally, the reactions from the crowd (or lack thereof). It’s interesting and entertaining viewing from another era.
