  • Description

    Titles read: 'Now Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - Another popular Comedian LESLIE WESTON of Radio and Variety fame'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Comedian Leslie Weston, dressed in white tie and tails, stands on a set dressed to look like a swanky and modern drawing room. He tells a few jokes - one is about a woman whose husband was always coming home drunk - Leslie advised her to use kindness. Next time the man came home drunk she sat him in an armchair, took his boots off and got him a drink then said "Now darling, what about coming to bed?". He said "I might as well, if I go home there'll only be a row ".

    He then sings a lively song called 'Mothers and Fathers', about Mother bossing Father about all the time and how she always has the upper hand. For example - "Mother has a string of gowns each one envy arouses, Father has a string as well but that holds up his trousers".
