• Short Summary

    Glamorous singer Elsie Carlisle sings 'Alone and Afraid' and 'My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes'.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Pathetone presents another popular Radio and Gramophone Star - Elsie Carlisle in 'Alone and Afraid' and 'My Canary has Circles Under his Eyes! -----." (timecode obscures remainder of titles.)

    London (probably Pathe Studios).

    Various shots of glamorous singer Elsie Carlisle in a beaded evening gown as she sings 'Alone and Afraid' - a song about giving her heart to a man who left her. A man in glasses accompanies her on the grand piano. Elsie then goes into a happier number called 'My Canary Has Circles Under His Eyes', about a canary who has been staying up late every night making whoopee.

    Elsie sings in a pleasant wavery tone of the kind that was popular at the time (and makes a nice change from the usual Pathetone sopranos!).

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)
