  • This clip shows a performance from "Princess Charming" at The Palace Theatre in London, (that being the play in which W H Berry played Albert Chuff).

    As such it is allied to clip 758.02, which shows more material from the same play.

    The play didn't debut until 1926, however, so this clip's current date range is incorrect.

    "Beery" in tags should read Berry.
