  • Short Summary

    Comedy act of two men in drag as old women in Victorian costume - no soundtrack.

  • Description

    McGregor and West. Part of issue LOOK OUT!

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this whole issue.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of a variety act consisting of two men in drag as old women in Victorian dress. One visits the other and they sit at a table and have tea. The visiting one picks up a cake or bun from the table and finds it is rock hard (rock cake?) so puts it back on the plate without eating it. They chat some more. It looks quite funny, but it would be even better with sound!

    I am informed by Amelia Hamer that one of these 'women' is called Fanny.
