  • Description

    Good film with singer / comedienne Sophie Tucker in Brentford, Greater London.

    Full titles read: "An unconventional picture of SOPHIE TUCKER - the one and only 'Red Hot Momma !"

    Intertitle reads: "Hold tight - we're taking you over to Sinclair', Brentford, to board "Sophie's" mobile cruising yacht."

    M/S's of several men helping Sophie Tucker to load up her new yacht. Sophie carries a small barrel down inside the boat. L/S of two women watching with interest from the roof of a small narrow boat. M/S's of Sophie being told the layout of her boat, to which she replies "beautiful, beautiful, beautiful."

    L/S's and M/S's of Sophie relaxing in a deck chair on the roof of her boat. Sophie attempts to light a cigarette several times as she asked question by a man off screen. The man says to her "we'll need to put some powerful diesel engines in." to which she replies laughing "What's a diesel engine ?" She then goes on to claim that she will race in the America's Cup "I'll do everything with my boat", she declares. Several more shots of Miss Tucker laughing and joking and singing on her boat (she certainly is quite a character).
