• Short Summary

    Cabaret entertainer Hildegarde performs the song 'I Was In The Mood'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now, here comes Hildegarde, (and a piano). (From Cafe de Paris, etc.)."

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of cabaret artist Hildegarde sitting at the grand piano in a sparkling evening dress. She plays and sings "I Was In The Mood" - a lilting song about a girl who ended up pushing a pram because... she was in the mood (mmm mmm!).

    Cataloguer's note: I think Hildegarde is quite a charming entertainer! Not many singers today could put over these simple (and sometimes rather dopey) songs in such a charismatic way.

    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.......

    Another nice performance from Hildegarde here. Two others can be seen in clips 1622.25 and 1092.28.
