• Short Summary

    Irish singer Talbot O'Farrell gives us a song about Ireland called 'Little Green Heaven'.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Pathetone now has pleasure in presenting - The famous Variety, Screen & Radio Star Talbot O'FARRELL."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of Talbot O'Farrell standing beside a piano in traditional 'Irishman' costume of a light-coloured top hat, dark double-breasted suit, light trousers and spats. He does a bit of patter about the silly titles of songs being sung nowadays.

    He then sings an Irish song called 'Little Green Heaven' (about Ireland, naturally). We see superimposed shots of the Irish countryside and the pretty colleen who is waiting for Talbot.

    Note: old database record gives title of the song as 'Irish Washerwomen' - I think this is incorrect.
