• Short Summary

    The famous band leader Geraldo and his band perform.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "GERALDO'S GAUCHOS TANGO ORCHESTRA - The haunting, pulse-stirring swing of the tango - and many hundreds of thousands of Radio fans have heard this orchestra."

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    M/S of the band leader Geraldo playing the piano. Group shot of the rest of the orchestra wearing gaucho costumes. They are playing a variety of instruments including the accordion, the cello and the violin. A man in the centre of the shot playing the guitar stand up and sings "Adios Muchachos."

    The story cuts to scenes to life in a South American square, people are seen walking around going about their everyday life in a very leisurely way (Note: There is a tower in the background - not sure where this is). M/S's of the band playing.

    Duplicate exists in Turns Can 16 - see separate record for details.
