• Short Summary

    Cute little song and dance routine performed by a troupe of girls and one boy.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Filmed at the Sunshine School - Chatham". Presumably Chatham in Kent although could be Gwent in Wales.- see note below

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Tots from two-and-a-bit to fourteen years - and all 'Got a date with an Angel'."

    Group of young girls dressed in little dancing outfits - sparkly tops with fluffy feathers attached - stand in rows in front of a curtain. A young boy stands at the front in the middle. He wears a suit. C/U of some of the little girls. They begin to sing and do a little dance. The boy is a bit of a show off!

    It is all kind of cute. The very youngest girl is featured strongly - she is concentrating very hard on what she is doing and is usually late with her moves.

    Note : children from the Muriel Thomas School of Ballet , Rochester, Kent - see note in file for CP 088

    This is Chatham, Kent. My mother Bery Frier (ne Braybrook) (still alive) is the tot in the front row. From the caption she's the youngest - born 29 April 29 she's under three at this point. Happy to share her recollections of filming this. She does still remember it clearly.
