    No titles. Unidentified Lady Singer - could be Helen Millais?

    Probably filmed in Pathe Studio, London.

    On a set dressed to look like a veranda or terrace we see some French doors open and a very glamorous brunette lady in a fabulous 1920s sparkling tulle dress appears, accompanied by a man in evening dress. The man walks off while she walks down the steps.

    She sings a ballad in a soprano voice, while clutching a silky scarf. Towards the end of the song, she starts to sing it at a faster, more upbeat tempo, and waggles her hips as she moves to the music.

    Unfortunately, there are no details to confirm this lady is Helen Millais, or what she is singing. If anyone knows, please get in touch!

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