  • Short Summary

    Extracts from "The Summertime Frolics" show including a funny chicken dance and juggling.

  • Description

    Scenes from "The Summertime Frolics" show at the Café de Paris in London.

    Edna Maude gives her interpretation of how a chicken would dance if it could. She dances on points with a small band playing behind her wearing a feathered outfit. Quite a funny routine.

    Willy Woltard, the eccentric juggler, has a little hat trouble. (A juggling routine involving attempts to control a runaway hat). The Frolics Girls perform a high kicks routine. Closer shot of the band.

    Safety print exists.

    Costumes for this show may have been designed by Dolly Tree. Looks like this was shot in the Pathe Studio rather than in situ at the Cafe de Paris.
