• Short Summary

    Wilson, Keppel and Betty do famous sand dance at Trocadero - dupe section of PT 164.

  • Description

    Wilson, Keppel and Betty - 'London Clubs and Cabarets - Trocadero Restaurant' in PT 164.

    This is duplicate section from the above story.

    We join the story when a small group of girls are dancing in a chorus line on the stage.

    Intertitle: 'A smile with Wilson & Keppel'.

    L/Ss of Wilson and Keppel doing their famous Egyptian comedy sand dance. The both wear little tunics and Egyptian head-dresses. It's very funny. Man backstage looks through curtain.

    Intertitle reads: 'And Wilson, Keppel & Betty "break in" - '.

    Wilson and Keppel do a funny dance up and down some steps on the stage (to a kind of hoe-down tune), then Betty (in sparkly and skimpy two-piece costume) joins them for a fast finale to their act, danced to 'Tiger Rag'. One cutaway shot shows a man backstage zipping up a mask on his head so he looks like an African man.

    Intertitle reads: 'And the grand finale brings down the curtain - '.

    Woman in a white tuxedo with top hat and cane walks on stage and strikes a pose. Curtain is drawn back to show a line of men in evening dress, top hats and canes (and African face masks) standing in the same pose, ready to start dance finale.

    Part duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 164 - see separate record for details.
