    Extracts from the musical "Follow Through" starring Elsie Randolph, Leslie Henson, Mark Lester etc.

  • Description

    Scenes from the new Musical Comedy "Follow Through" at the Dominion Theatre in London featuring Elsie Randolph, Leslie Henson, Mark Lester and Ada May.

    Stage set. A man and a woman dance - a jaunty "Lambeth Walk" style dance. They strut around the stage arm in arm and the woman kicks the man on the backside. Mark Lester and Jack Martin do a little golf skit. They are dressed in ridiculous golfing outfits. Leslie loads Jack down with lots of bags and a pair of blinkers. Leslie crouches down on the stage and places a training golf tee on the ground. He hands Mark a golf club and gives him tips on his technique. They get all tangled up and slapstick business ensues. Mark takes a shot. Leslie falls over and bends his golf club.

    Elsie Randolph and the chorus boys and girls do a dance routine. The boys are dressed in golfing "plus fours" and two tone golfing shoes. The girls wear flapper style outfits with cute little cloche hats. the girls bounce around with their skirts flapping then do some high kicks. Mark and Leslie do a turn as bogus plumbers in the ladies' locker room! Great M/S of chorus girls posing by set lockers in skimpy outfits and dressing gowns. They read magazines and one smokes with a long cigarette holder. Extremely glamorous! It is the set of a locker room. Mark and Leslie come in dressed as plumbers with fake moustaches and bowler hats - funny business ensues including an explosion and them climbing on top of the lockers. Very silly.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 435.

    Note: I think an extract from this film is to be found in "This Was Yesterday" - a slapstick massage routine.
