A scene from the comic play "Crime on the Hill".
Full title reads: "Now 'Pathe Pictorial' presents a topical peep at 'Crime on the Hill' at the Shaftesbury Theatre, London."
Introductory intertitle reads: "The Coroner (Sir Nigel Playfair), investigating the movements of young Anthony Field, has a few words with a witness (Drusilla Wills). (The Barrister... Basil Foster)."
Courtroom scene is acted out. Drusilla Wills plays a shrewish, upwardly mobile woman who is called to the stand. She has ideas above her station. She contradicts the judge who refers to her "lodgers", she insists that they are referred to as "paying guests". She used to be a music hall performer.
"Crime on the Hill" was obviously a comedy.
