View 1 - Three women wearing swimsuits and police badges measure the bathing suits of two men on the Venice beach. The young woman doing the measuring gives the information to a woman standing to her left, who is writing it all down on a notepad. Pretend tickets were handed out when the swimsuit was too skimpy. The women are members of the 52 Club.
