  • Short Summary

    Artist Webster Murray sketches a glamorous woman in the studio - no soundtrack.

  • Description

    Soundtrack is missing for this item.

    Titles read: "The gentle art of Sketching by Webster Murray".

    Shot of sketch spinning round and round. Quick shots of sketches - a woman in her bed looking alarmed as two intruders draw near, a be-feathered chorus girl looking from the stage into the audience, a woman yawning before getting into bed.

    Intertitle reads: "All of us at one time or another have tried our hand at sketching. Mr Murray, whose paintings in the Tatler, Bystander etc. are so well-known, sheds a little light on some dark secrets of the Artist."

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Shots of Webster Murray standing beside an easel and talking to camera. Brief shot of an attractive lady smiling. Murray sketches the woman as she takes on a soulful pose. The woman comes round to have a look at the finished portrait - very glamorous 1930s look.

    Nice shots of a well-known artist of the day at work.

    Note: film slips out of rack several times in telecine transfer and, in one case, stays that way for 14 seconds. This would need to be retransferred if required. This film is mistakenly filed in can for PSP 819.
