    The item is introduced by the comedian Ronald Frankau.

    M/S of the veteran comedian / entertainer Charles Coburn wearing a shabby suit and top-hat, his eyes have been blacked out with make-up. He says that he is about to sing a song called (not surprisingly) `Two Lovely Black Eyes'.

    Although the title, shots list and tags say this clip is of "Charles Coburn", the man singing here is actually Charles Coborn.
