• Short Summary

    Theatrical performance by Frank Titterton accompanied on a cinema organ - good audience shots.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Now Pathe Pictorial presents Titterton, the famous English and International Tenor with Alex Taylor at the Organ in "Friend O'Mine"."

    Low angle shot of Frank Titterton standing on a theatre or cinema stage. Alex Taylor plays the organ (a "Wurlitzer" type organ). Panning shot of the theatre audience - the auditorium is very full. M/S of the audience - most of them still have their hats and coats on - perhaps it is cold!

    M/Ss of Titterton singing intercut with shots of skyscapes.

    Another M/S of the audience and L/S of the organist and singer. Unusual sunburst effect used to link to the next shot - sun over the sea. Various shots of skies - cloudy and clear, woodlands, etc.

    M/S of the audience - a child sits nearest the camera.

    L/S of the performers.

    Ends with a shot from the stage of the audience applauding.

    Note: there is a strange fluctuation of image quality on this negative. Not sure if this is caused by decomposition or whether the neg might have been copied from a colour print?
