• Short Summary

    Comic monologue and song from comedian Tommy Handley.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Now 'Pathe Pictorial' presents another famous Radio Star, Tommy Handley, who will tell us something of his murky past!"

    Comedian Tommy Handley performs a monologue about his youth. He speaks into a telephone giving details of his school days. Silly stuff, most of which wouldn't make much sense to a modern audience.

    Tommy then approaches the piano and sings a sing with an accompaniment by a pianist we only see from behind. The song might be called "Hyde Park Corner".

    Note: film slips a little in the transfer to digibeta.
