• Short Summary

    The Five Sherry Brothers show off their versatility as musicians, singers and dancers.

  • Description

    The Five Sherry Brothers. Part of the PLAY-TIMING issue.

    Probably shot in Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of four of the Five Sherry Brothers in white ties and tails, playing the piano, two violins and a lap guitar respectively. The tune is 'Love's Old Sweet Song'. The fifth brother walks into shot, whistling the tune on his fingers! It sounds a bit like a theremin.

    Cut to three of the brothers doing a fast tap routine with the other two play piano and violin. We then cut to two of the brothers in funny little hats, singing a comic song about "Poor Man's Heaven" (?). Cut to three of the brothers tap dancing and tumbling while playing their violins; one of the others plays the piano. Versatile, aren't they?

    Other tunes heard are "Lazin'" and "I've Told Them All About You".
