  • Description

    Title reads: "The well-known Comedy Actor".

    Comedian Tom Walls appears as "The Mayor" in "The Cuckoo in the Nest" wearing a moustache and smoking a cigar. He pours himself a large drink from a decanter, downs it in one then wipes his mouth with a handkerchief. He looks around to see if anyone saw him drinking.

    We then see Tom at his Epsom home and racing stables. He rides towards the camera then jumps off the horse. A stable boy takes the reins. Some of his horses are walked past the camera. The horse "Ballin Valley" is compared to a small pony. Tom has a ride on the pony to comic effect. Horses called "Rushyford", "Laugh", "Loyal Heart" and "Apprentice's Tip" are presented to the camera. We see "Loyal Heart" being broken in with the aid of a lunge rope. We also see Tom with his dogs - an assortment of species.
