    Peggy Desmond plays 'Yours' and 'When We're Home, Sweet Home Again' plus animation.

  • Description

    Peggy Desmond. Part of THE YOUNG IDEA issue.

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of pianist and radio star Peggy Desmond sitting at the grand piano and playing two popular tunes. Peggy wears an evening gown with a transparent organza coat over it.

    The first tune is 'Yours'. Superimposed over the sheet music of the song, we see funny animation with the lyrics underneath. For instance, with the opening words "Yours till the stars lose their glory" we see an angry woman hitting her husband on the head numerous times with a rolling pin!

    Then Peggy plays 'When We're Home Sweet Home Again'. Brief animation shows a soldier coming home to find signs reading 'No Cigarettes' and 'No Beer'.
