• Short Summary

    'The Singing Lady' from US radio sings 'Mighty Like A Rose' in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'NOW Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - An Artist famous over the whole of America - "THE SINGING LADY" - Known and beloved to millions of Uncle Sam's children (and who incidentally broadcast over here recently as Guest Artist in Henry Hall's hour).'

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of 'The Singing Lady', dressed in a glamorous white evening gown, singing into a microphone. The song is 'Mighty Like A Rose' (or 'Mighty Lak A Rose'), sung in a straight, slow ballad style with piano accompaniment.

    Shots are intercut showing C/Us of babies.

    Note: could have been a 'mystery singer', popular radio gimmick of the time. Does anyone known her name?
