  • Description

    Very good educational film showing how the sets of a theatre in the West End are created.

    Full titles read: "STAGECRAFT ! - And a really novel and useful variety of stagecraft -"

    M/S's of the stage manager Mr Pepper sitting at a drawing board making a sketch of the set. Several shots of Mr Pepper constructing a miniature of the set which even includes tiny spot lights. Nice M/S of the curtain opening on the miniature stage.

    Various shots of men and women working on the full size set under the watchful supervision of the Mr Pepper. L/S's of men and women working on the 'fly wheel'. Several more behind the scenes shots of the set being built. Good L/S of the curtain being raised on the completed set and an organist playing a wurlitzer.
