    Various shots show people dancing on the terrace of a tree house, halfway up a large tree. Musicians from a jazz band sit amongst the branches of the tree and play 'How Am I To Know'.

    Very dark shots at night, we can just make out the band sitting in the tree above the house by the light of a flare or fire on the ground.

    Note: this tree house also featured in G 1495 - 'A Little Love Nest' in 1928- see separate record for details.
