• Short Summary

    Jack Warner and Jeff Darnell sing 'Just A Pair of Foreign Legionnaires'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone Re-introduces You To Another Famous Radio Star - JACK WARNER with his original partner JEFF DARNELL in a typical number".

    London, probably Pathe Studios.

    Various shots of Jack Warner (with a moustache!) and Jeff Darnell in evening dress, singing a song called 'Just A Pair of Foreign Legionnaires'. They both put on French Legion caps for the song; Jack puts on a French accent, Jeff doesn't - he plays the piano. They sing a chorus in French then engage in a bit of comic patter about the cost of marriage.

    Note: some short sections of sound are missing. This song originally appeared in Pathetone 344, along with another number or sketch - 'Cookhouse Call' - which is currently missing.
