• Short Summary

    Hebrew comedian Issy Bonn tells jokes and sings sentimental song - dupe of PT 475.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'MILLIONS HAVE HEARD HIM ON THE AIR - MANY HAVE SEEN HIM ON THE STAGE - HERE HE IS ON THE SCREEN - ISSY BONN THE FAMOUS HEBREW COMEDIAN'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Jewish comedian Issy Bonn enters and begins his patter act. He tells of the various dishes served at a wedding he went to, emphasising the meanness.

    He then sings 'Shake Hands With A Millionaire' (? or could be 'I Feel Like A Millionaire'?). A sentimental song about a beggar who feels rich because of "that kid of mine" - rather in the style of Al Jolson singing 'Sonny Boy'. Intercut with shots of a small four-year-old (?) boy playing and smiling at camera. Song tells of how rich the father is to have a son like this.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 475 - see separate record for details.
