• Short Summary

    Compilation of turns - Nosmo King with Hubert and Albert Sandler with Reginald King.

  • Description

    Pathetone Parade of 1940.

    Compilation of variety turns from Pathetone Weekly, Pathe Sound Pictorial and New Sound Pictorial cinemagazines.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Nosmo King with Hubert - comic sketch with Vernon Watson in blackface and Jack Watson as the orchestra leader heckling him from the pit. They engage in crosstalk about trouble with their wives, politics and big game hunting. This is probably missing item from PSP 898.

    Several shots of the sky at sunrise (or sunset) and silhouetted trees as commentator introduces Albert Sandler (violin), Reginald King (pianist) and Reginald Kilby (cello) playing 'Daybreak'. Cut to Sandler in the studio playing the haunting tune. Scenic shots are intercut showing the sunrise over a lake, the countryside and the sea. Towards the end of the item we see the other musicians. C/U of Sandler playing violin is held out of rack, unfortunately. This is missing item from PT 280 and also exists in Turns Can 2 - check for best quality.

    Note: there seem to be just three sections of this compilation that still exist - Part 2 described here and Part 3 and Part 4 (separate records).
