A drag act sings in a pub while a Pearly King watches in this short film shot in a London pub in 1963.

Amateur film 1963 3 mins Silent


A rush from Joan Littlewood's 1963 film about London leisure time, this shows some acts performing in a London pub - a drag act and a black singer, individually but both accompanied by a pianist - before a crowd that includes a Pearly King and a man in mayoral chains. Some good shots of the watching crowd, while Littlewood herself briefly features.
