  • Short Summary

    Composers at work - Everett Lynton and Jack Payne. Then see Payne and his band performing.

  • Description

    Opening intertitle reads: "As a contrast, many of us have danced to Everett Lynton's jaunty dance tunes - such as, "I Never See Maggie Alone", "Mistakes", etc.

    C/U of the composer at his piano composing a tune. C/U over his shoulder of the music he is writing. Dissolve into the printed sheet music for the song he has composed. "Most popular dance tunes start as a hurried script before reaching the dance Band experts, such as Jack Payne." Two composers at the piano work on a piece - perhaps it is Everett Lynton and Jack Payne.

    "A few days later our new tune, orchestrated by experts, completes a further stage." Jack Payne and another man work at the piano. The other man transcribes the music. "And eventually reaches the Broadcasting Studio." L/S of Jack Payne's band preparing to play. Jack walks towards a microphone (?) and the intertitle reads: "This is Jack Payne , and his BBC Dance Orchestra. Our next item is a new fox-trot..." He stands at the front and leads the band - various shots of band members as they play. Dissolve into a shots of buildings with broadcast masts on top - could be Broadcasting House but not the usual shot.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue 403.
