    The comedian Ronald Frankau performing comic routine.

  • Description

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Full titles read: "RONALD FRANKAU - the celebrated Radio, Variety and Gramophone Star. - At the piano Edward Stokes."

    Several M/S's of the comedian Ronald Frankau singing comical songs to his own music and telling several stories relating to his rather mixed up knowledge of British history. Frankau rarely performs one liners, most of his humour is based around clever word play "Bruce and the spider - Spruce and the Bider - Sprice and the Buder etc".

    Note: this is a good one! SL
