Actor Frank Vosper changes into the make-up and costume of King Henry VIII, then acts in a brief scene from 'The Rose Without A Thorn' with Joan Moore.
Titles read: "All Change! A Camera Cameo of Frank Vosper, the famous West-End Actor. (By courtesy of People's National Theatre)".
Various shots of Frank Vosper putting on his make-up for the character of King Henry VIII in the play of 'The Rose Without A Thorn' at the Duke of York's Theatre. Fade into shot of Frank in finished make-up and costume as he puts on a hat and his dresser puts an ornate chain around his neck. Frank stands up from the dressing table with the aid of a stick.
We then see Frank as Henry VIII playing in a scene with Joan Moore as Lady Catherine Howard, which seems to illustrate the first meeting between the two.
