Cyril Fletcher tells comic story in rhymes about a boatman and a mermaid.
Part of HANDS WANTED issue.
Pathe Studios, London.
Underwater shot of a deep-sea diver. M/S of actress dressed as a mermaid canoodling with the diver.
Various shots of Cyril Fletcher telling comic story in rhymes about a boatman named Joe who finds a mermaid on the beach. He takes her into town and everyone is scandalised by her lack of clothing. Cyril ends with line: "I love your English policemen" - probably a topical joke at the time. Cyril speaks in an exaggeratedly posh voice.
