  • Description

    Notting Hill, London.

    Frankie Vaughan started out with a teaching degree in art, and continues to take an interest in boys club activities, both helping out and raising funds for the Rugby Boys Club. M/S three boys sitting round a table, painting. Derek Rook, concentrating, puts his tongue out . He is painting a cowboy. One, Ambrose MacDonald, paints a picture of Frankie Vaughan, the entertainer. Frankie joins them and looks at the picture, he adds a few touches and then tousles the boy's hair and walks off.

    M/S of boys in and around a boxing ring. Frankie comes up to the ropes, takes off his jacket and gets in the ring. Frankie ties up Joe Carey's glove. C/U Frankie smiles. C/U of Joe's face, then of Joe and his opponent Alex Bill, sparring together, with Frankie stepping in to give them both instruction, feigning blows. M/S Mickey Delaney hitting a brown leather punch ball towards camera, with other boys in gym shorts and vests in the background.

    M/S Kenny McGee, looking hot and red faced, on an exercise bicycle. John Murray, Middlesex cricket wicket keeper, playing table tennis with a boy, with shots of the game in progress and two boys watching. Frankie comes into the canteen area of the club, chats to some of the boys and shakes hands with the woman behind the counter, who passes him a cup of tea. Frankie drinks the tea and a boy, Derek Lovell, comes in to ask for an autograph. Frankie, of course, obliges, and signs the book, smiling and laughing, and carries on drinking his tea. "He's a fine chap" finishes the commentary.
