  • Short Summary

    At home with Nellie Wallace - lots of girning and funny business from this comedienne.

  • Description

    Miss Nellie Wallace the music hall star is seen at home.

    She does housework, polishes shoes, offers her dog an apple, and demonstrates her hobby of celery raising (joke in the title about salary raising). She goes out into her garden and pulls two heads of celery from the ground. They do not look as if they are growing there! She sniffs the celery and (lip reading) says "ooh lovely". She hugs the celery to her chest. She then sits on the sofa with her sister (?) and dog reading a funny book - both women laugh uproariously. They are both gloriously goofy.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 22.

    Safety print exists. Probably to be found on "The Stars as They Are" reel.
