• Short Summary

    Jean Allistone and Rene Roberts meet on street set and trade insults - dupe of NSP 52.

  • Description

    Mrs Murgatroyd and Mrs Winterbottom (Jean Allistone and Rene Roberts).

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Two women - the wives of the comic characters 'Murgatroyd and Winterbottom' - meet on a set of a street and engage in crosstalk and insults.

    Jean Allistone is the wife of Tommy Handley (Mr Murgatroyd) - could Rene Roberts be the wife of Ronald Frankau (Mr Winterbottom)? This sketch follows the same pattern as their husbands' sketches together (see separate records) - lots of crosstalk and insults!

    Quite a rare and interesting sketch, for the reasons mentioned, but not that entertaining.

    This is duplicate of item in New Sound Pictorial NSP 52 - see separate record for details.
