Does anyone know of this film? There must be something special about it. Has vinegar, but also has bids up to £54 and still 8 days to go!

T.9361 "Street Show" 1934, issued by Pathescope August 1938.

This 2-reeler shows the work of the Busker, or Strolling Player of the kerb, may mean a step back and he is under the traffic wheels. a step forward and he may grace the theatre of tomorrow. See them providing London with a non-stop street show free for all.

Thanks Maurice
Forgot to put the link on, but yes that's the one. Do you have this film?

And how would you rate the film?

It's worth trying to find a copy.
An interesting film which shows various acts, many performers are ex-servicemen.
Did it perhaps influence the making of the 1938 "St. Martin's Lane" (aka "The Sidewalks of London")? Another great film which I have on 16mm.
