• Short Summary

    Cafe de Paris cabaret including fashion show and US singing quartet The Yacht Club Boys.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone is taking you over to the Cafe de Paris for a glance at the famous YACHT CLUB BOYS. Midnight... and dancing feet glide to the rhythm of Jack Harris and his Boys - "

    Cafe de Paris, London.

    Various shots of elegant couples in evening dress dancing to Jack Harris and his orchestra, playing 'Isle of Capri'.

    We then see girls modelling sportswear, while Mantovani and his Orchestra play a kind of tango number. One poor girl has to model long john-style underwear for hunting. Other women model elegant suits and golf outfits - one with a foldaway two-piece mackintosh (looks like a bin liner!).

    Then the four members of The Yacht Club Boys, an American singing group. They sing a jaunty comic song called 'We're Glad To Be In London'.
