Lily Morris

Terrific old film of the great Lily Morris singing "Why Am I Always The Bridesmaid". Shame its so crackly and jumpy though it still doesnt take away from a charming performance and eccentric dance at the end. You Tube is full of such gems of the music hall. Other names to look up are Marie Lloyd, Little Tich, Nellie Wallace, George Robey, Billy Bennett,Dan leno, etc. to name but a few.
