  • Description

    Part of issue I LIKES THAT.

    Location of events unknown.

    Montage of comedians Nan Kenway and Douglas Young in past sketches recorded for Pathe.

    M/S of Douglas in garden drawing cartoon of Mr. Grice, one of his comic characters. Producer Reginald Smith enters and asks Dougie to draw a caricature of him. Various shots of Reginald modelling for Dougie. Reginald pays him a halfpenny for the finished drawing.

    Nan enters with her Scottie dog, Bartie and asks Dougie to draw her and her pet. Half way through drawing, a waiter brings Dougie a glass of beer. On seeing the final result, Nan slaps Dougie's face. Two boy scouts enter collecting waste paper for war effort, Dougie gives them the picture of Nan.

    Note: it appears that soundtrack was recorded separately making final version look like it has been badly dubbed. This is not a problem in the transference - it was originally recorded like this.
