Cycling stunts and sight gags in a music hall curio.

Government sponsored film 1945 4 mins

Overview

A lanky comedian entertains an audience of servicemen and women with a series of bicycle-related stunts and sight gags in this comedy curio. Released by the Colonial Film Unit in December 1945, the film was intended for overseas audiences. It offered those serving abroad a reminder of home and those in the colonies a (perhaps rather baffling) taste of British music hall entertainment.
