Star Item
  • Description

    Full titles read: "Many millions have heard or seen the next Pathetone star - Miss Dorothy Ward - The famous Principal Boy and Musical Comedy Artist. (----- Floradora etc.)". (timecode obscures title.) "In this song "The same as we used to do", she is assisted by a little friend. (At the piano - Ivor Newton).

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of Dorothy Ward standing beside a grand piano as she sings 'The Same As We Used To Do". She wears a distinctive outfit of a white hat trimmed with an ostrich feather, white evening gown and white fur jacket. In the middle of the song she turns to a young boy in a smart uniform (like a minute Naval officer), who starts singing the song in a high voice. They sing the last few lines together.

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)
