    Good item featuring the O'Gorman Brothers in one of their comedy routines.

  • Description

    Item title reads - THE O'GORMAN BROTHERS. The famous comedy pair.

    London (probably Pathe studios).

    M/S of the O'Gorman brothers on a stage, a window is painted on the scenery behind them. One keeps trying to play the violin but his brother keeps coming in and making jokes and trying to dance with him, he also criticises his suit.

    The first brother gives the other a riddle, 'if you were out in a rowing boat with your sweetheart and your mother, and the boat capsized which one would you save?' C/U as he chooses mother because you only have one and you can get a sweetheart anywhere. Then he has to choose between wife and wife's mother, jokes ensue and he decides he'd save the boat!
