Star Item
  • Description

    No titles. Banjo Player - could be Ernest Jones or Alvin Keech.

    Probably filmed in Pathe Studio, London.

    A heavy plush curtain is pulled back to reveal a man sitting on a set decorated with potted palms and playing the banjo. The man has a thin moustache and wears white tie and tails (evening dress).

    He sings a pleasant little song - 'Dreaming of the Day', about how wonderful life will be when "you'll be mine".

    If this is Ernest Jones, item probably originates from Pathe Sound Magazine 35; if it is Alvin Keech it is probably from Pathe Sound Magazine 28.

    Note: item is out of synch throughout due to early sound recording.
