Scene from stage play - 'Busman's Honeymoon' - with Nellie Bowman, David Hawthorne and Dennis Arundell.
Full title reads: "Now we are taking you over to the Comedy Theatre, London, for a peep at - 'Busman's Honeymoon' where that famous Character Actress Nellie Bowman is being cross-examined by David Hawthorne. (In the background Lord Peter Wimsey - Dennis Arundell, watches)."
Scene from a stage play, appears to be a murder mystery. Various shots of stage with set that looks like dining room from country house. Nellie plays Mrs. Ruddle , a comic housekeeper, who is being interviewed about the mysterious death of her master. Hawthorne plays a detective trying to establish the time of death but gets frustrated as Mrs. R. keeps changing her story. In the end they discover that she was not (as first suspected) the last person to see her master, in fact it was the young police constable (character of Joe Sennen) taking notes. Arundell paces about in background, making odd comment.
Note: old records name play as 'Busman's Holiday'. Music is 'Light O' Love' by Thorn Hawkes.
Note: sound and vision seem slightly out of sync. I think this is because they we recorded separately and them edited together. AH 2001.
