Ronald Frankau - "brilliant entertainer of radio, record and stage". Accompanied by a piano, comedian Frankau sings comic song about an actor who doesn't want his mother to know he plays the back half of a pantomime horse. Makes a passing reference to John Gielgud. Frankau does camp dancing between verses. His personae is foppish posh actor type. He finished by singing "Morning to Night" - lamenting the hard life of a bit part actor.
