• Short Summary

    Billy Cotton and his band plus Rose Perfect at the Adelphi in Slough - dupe of part of PT 169.

  • Description

    Titles read: "We now present a topical mixture of Billy Cotton and his Band, (with Arthur Rosebery and his Band) - (Filmed at Slough)".

    Adelphi Ballroom, Slough, Buckinghamshire - now Berkshire.

    Item starts with Billy Cotton and his band playing a great version of 'I'm Just Wild About Harry'. All the band stop playing at one point and sing the chorus. Trumpeter (Grecia Farfel?) plays a solo spot, holding a single high note for some time. As the number ends (1 min 33 secs), band stands up to applause from audience in ballroom.

    Intertitle reads: 'Millions Of Radio Listeners Have Heard This Famous Artist - Rose Perfect, The Celebrated Soprano'.

    Rose Perfect stands in front of band singing, 'Song Of Songs'. Cutaways of audience watching. She finishes song to applause.

    This is duplicate of part of item in Pathetone PT 169 - the original item included other acts (Russell, Marconi and Jerry plus the Victoria and Astoria Girls) - see separate record for details.
