    Continued - see reels 1, 2 and 3.

    Reel 4.

    Mr and Mrs Robinson Cleaver perform a duet at the Organ - a large Wurlitzer style machine. Then Mr Cleaver plays a grand piano and Mrs Cleaver plays the Wurlitzer in a duet. C/U of the inside of the piano with keys hitting the strings. The piano has a mirror above the keyboard so that we can see Mr Cleaver.

    Last act is Cyril Fletcher. He tells jokes about oysters and ostriches. He recites an ode - "Dreaming of Thee" about fish and chips and one of his fans.

    Note: this film originally contained a sequence at the beginning of reel 4 showing Beryl Davis singing with George Posford at the piano ("My Very First and Only Rendezvous". Shots of the singer inter cut with images of room 504 where the rendezvous had taken place). This section is currently missing.
