Afrique. Part of issue VIEWS OF VARIETY.
Pathe Studios, London.
Popular radio and variety impressionist, Afrique, recreates a number of famous personalities of the day - Eddie Cantor and opera singer Benjamino Gigli (sp.?). Afrique sings a piece of opera in style of famous tenor, accompanied by a pianist.
Afrique appears in crudely done black make up and announces he is "2 Negro entertainers". Afrique does impression of two Afro-Americans talking about seeing a ghost. He then sings a song, "Chloe", in an Al Jolson style. Would seem racist to modern viewers.
