  • Description

    Edward Cooper. Part of PIGS MIGHT FLY! issue.

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Edward Cooper, in a day suit (not evening dress), sitting at the grand piano. He starts playing the piano and gives a little introduction to his song, saying he is taking us back to 1938. He launches into a song about 'Women's Silly Hats' about the strange creations that women wore on their heads in that year.

    In the middle of the song he does a bit of patter about the names given to said hats - like 'Carmen Miranda' or "Dainty - £9.10, very suitable for an air raid shelter perhaps?".
