  • Short Summary

    Scenes from the pantomime Babes in the Wood starring the Dolly Sisters and Albert Bruno.

  • Description

    New Oxford Theatre.

    The fabulous Dolly Sisters, dressed as the Babes in the Wood do a dance. One is dressed as a man and they wear Regency costumes. C/U of one of the Dolly Sisters appropriately enough holding a dolly. C/Us of the wicked Baron played by Albert Bruno. One of the Babes smokes a cigarette - coughing and spluttering to comic effect. She crosses her eyes and looks like she is getting a severe head buzz! It has been suggested that she looks as if she is smoking dope. The Dolly Sisters and Albert Bruno dance together.

    Some decomposition damage on images.
