• Short Summary

    Comedy team Forsythe, Seamon and Farrell do funny routine in studio - dupe of PT 236.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - The Famous Comedy Team - Forsythe, Seamon & Farrell - of Variety renown".

    London (probably Pathe studio).

    Man stands on stage singing in rich baritone voice 'Lord You Made The Night Too Long' (?) - a sombre song. He is interrupted by a large lady pushing a piano on stage claiming she wants 'hot music' (this safety print has 1 ft jump cut at this point - original is ok). Band strikes up an upbeat number and she sings 'I'm Nobody's Sweetheart Now'. She then dances and 'shimmies' to the music, wiggling hips and prancing over stage!

    As she finishes, petite girl rushes on asking "Is that was Mae West?". She holds hands with man and they sing 'Every Little Bit Of Me Likes Every Little Bit of You'. She then goes into high kicking, high stepping, pirouetting dance routine to 'Whistle And Blow Your Blues Away'(?). They have American accents.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 236 - see separate record for details.
