• Short Summary

    American singers Al and Bob Harvey sing 'Whoops We Go Again' - a song about ice-skating.

  • Description

    Flash frame titles read: "THOSE FAMOUS RADIO & VARIETY STARS AL and BOB HARVEY".

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    M/S of Al Harvey sitting at the grand piano, playing a little tune. Bob Harvey walks into shot, wearing a hat and scarf and carrying some ice-skates. He asks Al to go ice-skating, but Al says he can't skate good enough. Bob cajoles him, and starts to sing a rather old-fashioned song about going skating called 'Whoops We Go Again' - it sounds a bit like 'And The Band Played On'.

    Al joins in, and we are invited to join in the chorus ("whoops we go again"!). At the end of the song, Al decides to go skating with Bob and they both pretend to skate off the stage while whistling.
