Star Item
  • Description

    No titles. Tom Rogers - champion mouth organ manipulator.

    Probably filmed in the Pathe Studio, London.

    C/U of Tom Rogers, dressed in tweed suit and tie, holding a tiny harmonica or mouth organ. He puts it in his mouth, holds it between his lips or teeth and plays a very fast tune on it - sounds like a hornpipe or traditional Irish ditty. He really is a champion manipulator!

    M/S of Tom sitting at a piano. He puts a mouth organ in his mouth and plays a tune, accompanying himself on the piano - amazing!

    Item ends abruptly - may be incomplete. Film seems to be decomposing - visuals and sound both quite poor.

    This probably originates from Pathe Sound Magazine 25.

    Note: item is out of synch throughout due to early sound recording.
