• Short Summary

    Virginia Dawn sings of 'Six Lessons With Madame La Tonga' in a South American way.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone presents Another Singer Wellknown [sic] On The Air VIRGINIA DAWN".

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of Virginia Dawn singing a song that is probably called 'Six Lessons From Madame La Tonga' - a sort of novelty number about learning the latest South American dances. Virginia wears a fashionable long evening gown and does lots of arm gestures and hip waggling. A man accompanies her on the grand piano; drums and percussion are heard, but not seen.

    A rather 'English' performance with a Latin American tempo, but quite good fun!
