  • Short Summary

    Great comedy dance routine by Mr Ally Ford - dancing in very large boots.

  • Description

    No title.

    C/U of Mr Ally Ford - a vaudeville act of the 1930s. He begins to dance and as the camera pans down we see that he is wearing very big boots. They are like big penguin's feet. During the dance he jumps up and balances on the tips of his boots. It is a pretty good routine and reminds me of something I've seen Little Tich* doing...

    Various shots of his dance routine including some slow motion footage.

    Note: flash frame intertitles.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 652.

    Note: I'm pretty sure that Little Tich is the correct spelling but for search purposes - Little Titch.
