  • Short Summary

    At home with Madge Saunders and Leslie Henson - they fool around for the camera.

  • Description

    Madge Saunders looks from a window wondering where Leslie Henson has got to. She spots him sitting in the garden drinking what is probably an alcoholic drink. He is sitting in a deck chair and reading a script. Madge comes into the garden. Leslie is laughing out loud at what he is reading.

    Intertitle reads: "Never mind your new play, Leslie - you must show the visitors our goat farm". Madge pulls him from his deck chair. C/U of Leslie putting something into his glass of whiskey (?). Madge and Leslie feed a baby goat - a kid - with some straw. Leslie brings a bucket and splashes water on the kid. They have a game of tennis but we only see Madge play. Tea is served by maids on the patio of a house. A nice family group. Leslie comes up swinging his tennis racquet. An Intertitle reads; "It even tempted our cameraman from his camera." but we do not see the cameraman take tea. Story incomplete.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue 11.

    Safety print exists - show print. Will probably be found in "Stars as the Are" reel.

    Neg is missing main title - I think safety print has main title. I believe Madge Saunders and Leslie Henson were married.
