Two dances sequences by Carr and Parr

The film shows two dance sequences. The first, on a military theme, is shown straight and in a split screen sequence. The second was possibly performed to Tea for Two. The split screen sequence reveals a pitfall of live music hall performers being required to put their act onto film. A dance sequence that works live gets muddled in the split screen sequence.
