• Short Summary

    The Impersonator Afrique uses make up to aid his singing impressions of celebrities.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown. 1935?

    Title reads: "The Popular Impersonator 'Afrique' of Variety ... Fame"

    The Impersonator Afrique stands next to a piano and gives a series of singing celebrity impressions.

    'Richard Tauber as we see him in Blossomtime.'

    'George Bernard Shaw giving us his views of modern crooning.'

    He know dressed in Russian Cossack clothing to sing a song called Blackeyes.

    'Paul Robeson singing Might Like A Rose'

    Between each impression Afrique uses make up and wigs and costume changes. The film speeds us through these changes.

    Possibly a dupe of PT 256 - Pathetone.
