  • Description

    Titles read: "Big Applesauce".

    New York, United States of America.

    L/S of participants on stage in a satirical show called 'Big Applesauce', put on by 'The Inner Circle' - members of the New York political press. The men seem to be dressed as dwarves or goblins. Public figures including 'Big' Jim Parley (? Carney?), Mayor La Guardia and Governor of New York Herb Lehman (? Lehmann?) are seen in evening dress, attending the show to see themselves lampooned.

    Reporter Murray Denner (?), in Scottish costume and kilt, sings a song about the dealings of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Governor Lehman, to the tune of 'Loch Lommond'. Other men in Scottish dress stand behind him.
