  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Cuts from newsreel 46/58 - George Bernard Shaw on 90th birthday at home in Ayot St Lawrence, Hertfordshire.

    Playwright George Bernard Shaw, dressed in knee breeches and wide brimmed hat leaves house. Stops and turns face to camera, walks towards camera with outstretched hand, talks to interviewer.

    Shaw approaches small hut in garden, opens door with key, enters and sits down and uses typewriter, conversing with cameraman, posing in doorway. His male secretary opens his mail, his housekeeper picks flowers. Shots of house and grounds.

    Excellent candid footage of Shaw, with the great man looking very sprightly at 90!
