  • Description

    Full titles read: "Max Trytel presents - The Empire Girls - with Charlie Robbins - from 'Hit the Deck'."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots show a group of chorus girls dancing into view and doing a little routine to the tune of 'When You're Smiling'. They wear short skirts and little tops. Charlie Robbins enters, wearing a sailor suit and does a tap and acrobatic routine to a different tune (not recognised by this cataloguer). The girls come back on in rather unflattering costumes - it looks like they are wearing just bras and knickers with a sash around their middles and flouncy calf frills. They dance about, then are joined again by Charlie. The girls dance off the 'stage', followed by Charlie doing a funny knee-dragging step.
