  • Short Summary

    Cabaret acts do their stuff at the Piccadilly Hotel - nice chorus girls and "simultaneous dancers".

  • Description

    THIS DIGIBETA VERSION HAS BEEN MADE FROM THE PRINT - VERSION ON TAPE *PM0994* WILL PROBABLY BE BETTER QUALITY AS TAKEN FROM THE NEGATIVE.

    Piccadilly Cabaret at the Piccadilly Hotel in London.

    "And a very nice "Playtime" chorus, too!" M/S of a group of chorus girls in fabulous outfits doing a cute dance with skirts that bob up and down showing their bloomers. They perform a high kick routine. "Same-time - every-time - steps by Les G. and R. Zenga, the simultaneous dancers." M/S of two men dressed identically who dance identically. The band can be seen in the corner of the shot. Diners sit at tables around the dance floor.

    "And do this dance before breakfast and you'll live for ever," said Amelia Allen the next Artiste." Solo dancer does a high kicking routine, holding her leg up high almost touching the side of her head. She does some acrobatics too. Very supple.

    This was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 197.

    Note: costumes for this show were designed by Dolly Tree.

    Safety print exists. Probably to be found in the "Frocks Frolics and Follies" reel.
