• Short Summary

    Cabaret star Hildegarde sings 'Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup' in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - HILDEGARDE - the famous International Cabaret and Radio Star".

    Probably filmed at Pathe Studio, London.

    Cabaret singer Hildegarde sits at the grand piano and introduces her song as being about an English boy falling in love with a French girl, but not knowing enough of the French language to express his love. She sings and plays 'Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup' - quite charming!

    Fashion note: Hildegarde wears a halterneck dress with a shiny black bodice (looks like leather or pvc!) with the remainder of the gown in a checked fabric - unusual!

    This lady's full name was Hildegarde Sell.

    She lived until the grand age of 99. More information about her is contained in her attached obituary.......

    Nicest singing performance I've seen on Pathe, that!
