  • Short Summary

    The Mad Musician Herschel Henlere plays the piano - no soundtrack.

  • Description

    There is no soundtrack for this issue.

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - Another famous Variety & Radio Artist - HERSCHEL HENLERE - 'The Mad Musician!'"

    London (probably Pathe studio).

    Various shots of Herschel Henlere sitting at the grand piano. He has a shock of 'mad musician' hair and a painted-on moustache. He appears to be telling a few jokes, then plays the piano with great gusto.

    Alas, with no soundtrack, we cannot tell what it is, but an old database record lists the music as 'Trees', 'Lullaby of the Leaves', 'Down In The Forest', Rachmaninoff's 'Prelude in C' and 'The Cuckoo'.
