Comedy patter from Leslie Weston including a jolly song called "The Freedom of the City."
Full title reads: "Now the 'PICTORIAL' introduces another famous Variety and B.B.C. Artist Leslie Weston The Cheery Chatterbox in 'The Freedom of the City'."
Leslie Weston does a routine. A pianist accompanies him (he wears dark glasses). Leslie pretends to be on the telephone - various jokes including one about having the measles. A joke is made which may be considered racist - Leslie describes how his doctor had been treating a man for jaundice only to find out later that he was a Chinese man. Jokes continue - one about a heavyweight boxer, funny advertisements in the newspaper, a barber's shop in the East End etc.
Leslie sings a comical song called "The Freedom of the City" nominating a few people who he believes should be given it. These include butchers (some joke about "getting a piece of skirt"), sculptor Jacob Epstein, Gordon Richards (?), tramps, barmaids and the British working man.
He ends his song with a bow.
Note: several of the jokes don't make much sense in the 1990s - presumably topical at the time.
I think this is the first issue of the Pathe Sound Pictorial to feature the new design "The End" - this one has a cockerel on - the previous end title had no bird.
