  • Description

    Scenes from the play "The Lido Lady" at the Gaiety Comedy in London.

    Jack Hulbert and the Company do a Charleston. We see this from various angles. The male members of the cast are wearing plus fours and stripy socks. Phyllis Dare, Dave Fitzgibbon and Harry White dance together - another fast Charleston. "Sheba and Company" pose for the camera. They wear extremely elaborate costumes with ornate head dresses.

    L/S of the stage from a high angle as the women show off their outfits, parading around the stage. "Sheba was kind to our camera - " C/U of seated Sheba with large feather and jewels head dress. She turns her head slowly to show off the creation.

    Was probably originally an item in Eve's Film Review issue 291.

    Safety print exists.

    Costumes for Lido Lady designed by Guy de Gerald - some great outfits.
