    L/S's of the character impersonator Leslie Strange sitting at a dressing table. The commentator asks him if he can do and impression of Adolf Hitler. Strange replies that he can only manage impersonations of civilised people.

    The commentator then asks him if he can do it for fun to which he obliges. Strange looks in mirror and puts a wig and moustache on. He turns round and starts ranting and shouting, he declares ".. I have no further territorial claims what we want is living space... LIVING SPACE !"|

    Strange then performs impressions of famous stars including Jack Holt, and an impressive Stan Laurel. The commentator then challenges him to do Lloyd George. Once again he put a wig and moustache on. He does an impressive speech as the former Prime Minister in which he talks about the success he has had in his garden recently. He then performs his favourite imaginary character the British working man from the north.
