  • Description

    No titles.

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    A man sitting beside a gramophone player introduces the variety act of Presco and Campo and puts a record on the turntable (this is probably from a later compilation).

    Various shots of the excellent comedy tumbling act of Presco and Campo. First they act out a man trying to read a newspaper on a train, with both men trying to take the newspaper from the other and take his seat. They do lots more tumbling, acrobatics and comedy falls. Both men are wearing normal suits, but one has a made-up face like a mime artist. Amazing leaps and falls - this is really entertaining!
