Star Item
  • Description

    Titles read: "Pathe 'PICTORIAL' presents Jean Melville & Rene Cook - The well-known BBC and Concert pianists - ".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Jean Melville and Rene Cook, both wearing evening dresses, sit back to back at two grand pianos and play duet 'Fit As A Fiddle' (at top speed!). Cutaways of their hands on keyboard and reflections in piano lids.

    They then play 'Me Minus You' in a more laid-back tempo. Then back to the rip-snorting 'Fit As A Fiddle' to the end. Great piano playing! Jean appeared in several other Pathe items - check separate records for details.

    Note: item is slightly out of synch on this combined print - only really noticeable when they hit the final notes just after we've heard them!

    This is duplicate of item in Pathe Sound Pictorial PSP 803 - see separate record for details.
