  • Short Summary

    The Four Aces perform a piece called 'Air Raid' - no soundtrack.

  • Description

    Soundtrack is currently missing for this item.

    Titles read: "Pathetone now has pleasure in presenting - The popular Radio and Variety Artists - THE FOUR ACES".

    Various shots of the singing / comedy group The Four Aces gathered around the microphone, and performing a piece called 'Air Raid'. Several shots intercut show aeroplanes flying at night, searchlights in the sky, guns firing. The men seem to be making all the noises that accompany an air raid. They take a bow at the end.

    Seems an odd choice for an entertainment piece, especially considering the trouble in Europe at the time. Maybe with sound it is more amusing!
