• Short Summary

    Comedy act Nan Kenway and Douglas Young perform some humorous dialogue.

  • Description

    Titles read: "'VERY TASTY, VERY SWEET!' Pathetone Presents Those Two Famous Radio Entertainers 'KENWAY AND YOUNG'".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Douglas Young (in white dinner jacket) introduces the act, explaining that Nan Kenway (glamorous blonde in lacy evening gown) will be playing two characters. They go into some dialogue concerning an old woman (Mrs Yatton) who has proposed to an old man - he seems more interested in food, mishearing several kinds of food and describing it as 'Very tasty, very sweet' (obviously his catch phrase, along with "Makes you think."). Nan Kenway acts as a kind of straight woman between the two characters.

    Note: this comedy act had a radio show together, probably called 'Very Tasty, Very Sweet'.
