  • Short Summary

    Billy Merson, Annie Croft and Reginald Sharland dance in the show "My Son John".

  • Description

    Excerpts from the Shaftesbury Musical Play "My Son John".

    "Billy Merson likes company when he twinkles his toes -" reads the opening intertitle. Billy Merson does a comedy dance routine dressed in a kind of Turkish looking outfit - he wears a fez. He dances in front of a line of chorus girls, some of whom wear silky Chinese pyjamas, others wear very short shorts. They dance offstage.

    The pyjama clad girls do a high kick routine. Then the girls in shorts do the same. Annie Croft and Reginald Sharland perform a dainty waltz.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue number 290.
