• Short Summary

    Great story shows comedian Leslie Henson being sketched by artist Frank Slater.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Camera Interviews - Leslie Henson".

    London (?).

    M/S of comedian Leslie Henson in his dressing room (looks like a set). A woman who looks very much like Beatrice Lillie / Bea Lillie enters with artist Frank Slater; she says Frank is going to draw Leslie, while she holds the patient's hand. Frank asks Leslie to do a bit of face-pulling; he obliges by pulling a good one, with a raised eyebrow and grimly set mouth. He jokes a bit with the woman while Frank sketches. The picture is very good. Leslie pulls another face; when he sees the finished picture he says "That's where I say, "You can't come into this nudist camp, you've got fur on your tongue!"." Fade out.
