• Short Summary

    Felix Mendelssohn and his Hawaiian Serenaders perform 'Sweet Leilani'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Sweet Leilani".

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of Felix Mendelssohn and his Hawaiian Serenaders performing the number 'Sweet Leilani' while solo dancer Cynthia Read does some hula-girl hip swaying and snaky hand movements. Good C/U of Cynthia turning to the camera and giving us a wink. C/U of Mendelssohn.

    A nice, informal performance, with the musicians sitting or standing around, and exotic hula girls swaying to the gentle music.

    (Oh, to be in Waikiki!)
