    Reel 1 of this film is currently missing.

    i) Radio announcer stands by a turntable and speaks into a microphone as he puts the needle on a record. Miss Elsie Carlisle and her band perform a song. Elsie stands on a balcony in a black dress with white fur trim. She walks down the stairs as she sings then stands by the piano. The boys in the band wear suits and look very dapper. They ask Elsie to tell them all about being in love. She sings two songs about it. She then sings a song about an ex-boyfriend who has gone off with the girl next door. She takes off her little cape. She pretends to be sad about it and goes to look at his photograph which is standing on the table. She sings a song which may be called: "You've got me crying again." She puts a black chiffon scarf over his photograph and walks back up the ornate staircase as the band play a jazzy version of "It's great to be in love" which Elsie had sung earlier.

    01:29:50 The door to Claude Hulbert and Gus McNaughton's Copying Office opens to reveal the two inside They are talking about jokes they have stolen from Tex McLeod - a joke about two girls in an asylum who were developing a film of Jack Buchanan in a fog...
