• Short Summary

    A night at Murray's Club shows a variety of cabaret acts for our entertainment.

  • Description

    Titles read: "London's famous Clubs and Cabarets - Murray's Club - London - long after dark, when most folk are on their way home."


    C/U of a man taking a watch out of his pocket; the time is 12.30. Very brief shot of crowds in a London street; they seem to be outside a tube station with a sign reading 'Piccadilly & Hampstead Railways'.

    Various shots of people in Murray's Club dancing to the band of Eddie Gross-Bart and his Boys. Billy Wells chats to Eddie (?) as he and his partner dance beside the bandstand. Some of the other couples hold balloons as they dance.

    Intertitle introduces the Sarroni Sisters and Medvedeffs Balalaika Band and Chorus; we see dancing girls in little fur-trimmed costumes dancing before the diners to a fast Russian tune. Next act is Delores, doing a kind of skippy tap routine. Mary Stewart does some acrobatics in her tap routine. Some men and women in the audience are wearing black eye-masks. The Sarroni Sisters are two girls doing a kind of waltz. For their finale one spins the other around on her shoulders. Marjorie Pointer does a dance on points to a jaunty tune (it looks a little strange). The dancing girls reappear to do a kind of folk dance with tambourines and peasant costumes. Brief shots of the audience applauding.

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)

    Note: Murray's Club was still going strong in the 1960s - see Colour Pictorials CP 341 ('Cabaret Girls') and CP 425 ('Winter Wonderland').
