• Short Summary

    Sinister actor has hidden talents.

  • Description

    Actor Ernest Thesiger who often plays murderers and madmen is also an expert embroiderer.

    Lots of good C/Us of Ernest and his craftwork. He has even written books on the subject of embroidery and we see him looking at one of his books in C/U. Another hobby is making pictures from paper (decoupage?) and we see some of these. Ernest shows the camera an ornate beaded creation and an embroidered chair. Lastly a paper model of Queen Elizabeth the I made by Ernest is shown to the camera.

    Unable to read name of cameraman on title.
