  • Description

    No titles.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Head and shoulders shot of Sam Mayo as he sings his own composition 'I'm Going to Sing a Song (to you this evening)'. The song tells how he has "the finest voice on earth" and how he appeared before the King.

    Intertitle reads: 'Once upon a time everybody sang, hummed or whistled this - (and the reply to it.)'.

    Sam Mayo sings his famous number, 'Where Do Flies Go In The Winter Time?' He then sings the answer song 'I Know Where The Flies Go In The Winter Time'. (Both songs are Mayo's own compositions.)

    Intertitle reads: 'And here's another.'

    Sam Mayo, wearing a battered top hat, sings 'I've Only Come Down For The Day'. Part of the song tells of asking for directions from someone with a bad stutter.

    Note on music sheets 'By Special Arrangement With The Publishers. £1.1s.0p for these items'.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathe Sound Pictorial PSP 759 - see separate record for details.
