  • Short Summary

    Good footage of Gracie Fields talking into camera.

  • Description

    Location Unknown / Unclear

    Gracie Fields seated on sofa talking about last several years of her life - the time she spent away from home. She talks about her concerts, singing for troops and collecting the money for war charities etc. She feels a bit tired, she says, she wants to retire, or at least take a rest.

    Cataloguer's note: For a person with her stage experience, Gracie Fields seems to be quite shy and very nervous - unusual. Towards the end of the item, some very good shots of Gracie, smiling, looking nervous, thinking etc.

    Year: 1946?
