• Short Summary

    Comedians Haver and Lee perform routine involving anti-love pills.

  • Description

    Haver and Lee - comedians.

    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    American Haver tries to recite "Christmas Day in the Workhouse" but Lee, wearing a monocle, keeps interrupting. He goes off and comes on with a feather duster. He finally receives a letter from his sweetheart who says she has been married. Haver gives him some anti-love pills, he takes a mouthful of them. A pretty girl comes on and tries to tempt him but he resists. Then he spits the pills out and chases after the girl.

    Duplicate exists in Turns Can 9 - see separate record for details.
