• Short Summary

    Patrick Waddington, William Walker and Peggy Cochrane entertain with piano and violin playing and singing.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Another Pathetone "Star" Variety and Radio Item. "That Certain Trio" - Patrick Waddington, William Walker and Peggy Cochrane, in melodious melody." (may be incorrect - title obscured by timecode.)

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    M/S of Peggy Cochrane sitting at and playing a grand piano; one of the men sits with his back to her, playing another grand (not sure if this is Patrick Waddington or William Walker); the other man stands beside Peggy's piano. The other gentleman comes forward to stand between the two pianos and sings the jaunty number 'Cheerful Little Earful'; the other two join in singing halfway through. Peggy then plays the more sedate tune 'I'm On My Way To Heaven', accompanied by the piano man. The singing man comes back to sing the same song.

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)

  1. Geoff Sherratt says

    The male pianist is William Walker and the vocalist is Patrick Waddington, who sang with Peggy Cochrane in British Pathe PDF 1586.05. Patrick later went on to feature in films in 1940s-1960s often playing military roles. He was even in a couple of episodes of Dad\'s Army, as a brigadier.
