• Short Summary

    Entertainer Billy Milton performs one of his own 'laughing' songs at the piano.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Now Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - Billy MILTON - of Stage & Screen fame in one of his own Laughing Compositions (By courtesy British International Pictures Ltd.'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Billy Milton, dressed in white tie and tails, sits at a grand piano and sings a humorous song about doing naughty things like putting chewing gum on cinema seats, pulling the petals off spring flowers, pushing people over and leaving burn marks on tables. It's not very funny (in the opinion of this cataloguer). The song is punctuated by several bouts of Billy laughing (not very sincerely).

    Note: no details found as to what the title of the song is. Notes on file list Billy's films, shows, radio and cabaret work.
