    Hutch sings 'Close Your Eyes' at the Malmaison Club in London - dupe of PT 116.

  • Description

    Full titles read: 'Millions have heard Leslie Hutchinson, ("Hutch"), and his piano "on the air", stage or record. - Here he is on the screen. (Filmed at the "Malmaison", London.)'.

    Interior of Malmaison Club with dancers and diners. Applause and Leslie Hutchinson, aka Hutch, sings 'Close Your Eyes', sitting at piano surrounded by people sitting at tables. (This is not the more well-known standard ballad of the same name - SL).

    He is accompanied by trio of musicians. Cutaways of diners and drinkers as he sings. Part way through song he plays he plays fast piano solo. At end of song, he stands and acknowledges applause then exits.
