• Short Summary

    Troise and his Mandoliers play 'Gypsy Moon'; tenor Don Carlos sings.

  • Description

    No titles (there may have originally been a spoken introduction, but only a few frames are seen.)

    Various shots of Troise and his Mandoliers (a whole orchestra of mandolin players, plus two accordions, a piano, vibes and a guitar played Hawaiian-style) playing 'Gypsy Moon'. Tenor Don Carlos (playing a small guitar or a large ukulele) sings the lyrics. Several shots are intercut showing the moon in the night sky.

    Followed by a very unfunny (to this cataloguer) introduction by a man eating a banana. He comes out from behind a theatre stage curtain and introduces Charlie Coburn (the original 'Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo'). Charlie Coburn's act is missing and doesn't appear to belong to this issue anyway.

    Duplicate exists in Turns Can 6 - see separate record for details.
