• Short Summary

    Blackface trio The Three Eddies sing 'Talk About Jerusalem Morning' - dupe of PT 059.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Now 'Pathetone' presents that famous Comedy, Dancing & Harmony Team - The Three Eddies".

    London (probably Pathe Studios).

    The Three Eddies, a black and white minstrel trio sing a gospel song, 'Talk About Jerusalem Morning' in close harmony, a cappella style. (The chorus of this song is; 'I'll Be Ready When The Great Day Comes', which could be an alternative title.)

    They are dressed in frock coats, bowler hats and white gloves, with blacked-up faces and white lips. They dance and generally fool around as they sing.

    At end of song, they bow and then finish their act by tap dancing to 'Happy Days Are Here Again'.

    This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 059 - see separate record for details. There is another dupe in Turns Can 11 with poor sound - it may have been redone in this Turns Can.
