• Short Summary

    Cute film of Graham Payn singing a song about the countryside - illustrated with scenic shots.

  • Description

    M/S of Graham Payn sitting on a gate on a studio set representing a countryside scene. He jumps down off the gate. He is wearing a school blazer and white trousers. Graham sings "Meadowsweet". Intercut with shots of the "South African Boy Soprano" are pretty countryside scenes. Montage includes: fields, cows, woodland, farms, meadows, horses, etc. It is rather sweet actually. Graham turns and walks away from the camera at the end of the song.

    Note: Graham Payn in later life was to become long time partner of Noel Coward.

    Paperwork currently missing for this issue - therefore no music cue information.

    Last item on reel - no end titles.
