  • Description

    Titles read: 'Many centuries ago, so legend says, a joyous Cossack troupe rode off for a days hunting. Near the banks of a river they found a tiny baby, abandoned, and their efforts to amuse it were immortalised in an old jocular folk song.'

    Today Pathe Pictorial presents BASIL KLON and his famous Cossack Choir (from the Cossack Restaurant, London) in their spirited version of the legend.'

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of Basil Klon and the five men and one woman of his Cossack Choir, all in traditional dress, singing a stirring Russian folk song. The woman plays the grand piano and joins in the singing. One of the men plays the tambourine. Another men does a short bit of Cossack dancing in front of the group at the end of the song.
