The Bryants Silent Comics
The Seven Menorcas Acrobats
(both by permission of the London Casino Restaurant and Clifford C. Fischer)
Joan Miller 'Grand Hotel, Good Morning!'
Lu Anne Meredith in Songs and Dances
The Knife-Throwing Denvers Western Speciality

All these artists have appeared before in television programmes. The Bryants go through their hobo act without saying a word, and invariably leave their audience helpless with laughter; the Seven Menorcas were one of the attractions in a cabaret bill televised on February 20; Joan Miller is in the studio every Wednesday as the switchboard girl in 'Picture Page'; Lu Anne Meredith, the famous American film star, was seen in February; and the Knife-Throwing Denvers, a hair-raising act, full of thrills, were seen last November.
This show will be presented with film shots of express trains of all nations, the captions being displayed on railway signals.
