• Short Summary

    Cal McCord does his rope spinning act and tells jokes - dupe of PT 225.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - Cal McCord - With Cords and Cordiality."

    London (probably Pathe studio.)

    Cal McCord spins his rope - lasso - lariat , performing tricks while telling stories. He refers to various cowboy relatives and how one was run over by a dray cart carrying barrels of beer - "that's the first time the drinks were on him". He performs a trick using the goose step. Tells stories of relations in prison. He then spins two ropes and, as they spin, he remarks that it "looks like Harold Lloyd's in town". He finishes his act by spinning a rope and jumping in and out of the loop it forms.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 225 - see separate record for details.
