• Short Summary

    Comedian Hugh Rene offers the views of a toff, a parson and a coster on their ideal girl.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - HUGH RENE - The popular Comedian from the Windmill Theatre, London. IN "My idea of a girl"."

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Hugh Rene, wearing white tie and tails, sits at the grand piano and plays a classical flourish. He gets up and says to camera "That's enough of that rubbish anyhow!", then introduces his song, 'My Idea of a Girl'.

    He plays the piano and performs his humorous song - speaking rather than singing. In it he takes the viewpoint of an upper-crust toff, a parson and a cockney costermonger on what their ideal girl would be like.
