  • Short Summary

    The actor Eille Norwood is shown making up for his role in The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

  • Description

    "A Rapid "Make-up" study of Mr Eille Norwood in The Return of Sherlock Holmes at the Princes Theatre London."

    C/U of the actor smoking a pipe in an elaborate dressing gown. Wider shot showing Norwood to be in a set depicting a mans dressing room or bedroom. A man in a suit - his dresser or valet - puts a suitcase on the chair as Mr Norwood sits down at a dressing table. He sits in front of the mirror and we see his reflection over his shoulder. He puts a kind of bib around his neck which is a false shirt and tie. He then puts on a wig, false nose and moustache and glasses. His valet helps him on with his jacket and passes him his hat.

    M/S of Norwood opening the door and leaving in full disguise. Iris in.

    Paperwork states was originally an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 293.

    Note: strange name "Eille" has been checked - correct spelling.
