• Short Summary

    Organist Reg Foort plays the organ in several different styles.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now for another famous Broadcasting & Recording "Star" - Reginald Foort F.R.C.O. - the celebrated organist."

    Location of event uncertain, but thought to be the Regal cinema in Wimbledon, London.

    Various shots of organist Reginald Foort playing the organ in different styles. He introduces each short piece of music, played in the styles of a cathedral organ (short shot intercut of a cathedral organ), a barrel organ, an organ grinder, a fairground organ (short shot intercut of a merry-go-round / carousel), and a mouth organ.

    He finishes by giving us an impression of the old lady who lives upstairs from him, and plays on an American organ with a dud note.
