  • Description

    Full titles read: "Now kindly meet another Radio & Variety personality - Miss Betty Fields - As soon as you see and hear Betty you'll call to mind her famous sister. At the Piano, Edward Holmes."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    M/S of comedienne Betty Fields, sister of Gracie, in an evening gown. She dances around in front of a piano as Edward Holmes plays a Spanish-style tune. As Betty shimmies she calls over her shoulder, "Enjoying yourself, love?", then starts singing her comedy song, 'Fonso, My Hot Spanish Knight'.

    The song is about her supposed Spanish lover: "I found him stalling in Madrid-a, him say he got a million quid-a - some day I hope to be his widder [widow], Fonso, my hot Spanish knight."

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)
