    Pathe Studio, London.

    Unidentified man introduces the Carson Sisters with a silly poem (this is probably from a later compilation).

    We then see various shots of the Carson Sisters - one is brunette and plays an alto saxophone, the other is blonde and plays the accordion. Both are very pretty and wear long but somewhat informal dresses.

    While the blonde plays they both sing in close harmony a fast jazz song called 'How Many Times?'. In the middle of the song the brunette toots her saxophone and they slow the music to half time. Back up to speed as they sing a final snatch of the song. The blonde hits a high note on the final chords.

    This is a great one - a really fun variety act! (Wonder how successful they were?)
