Full title reads: "Capetown. 'G.B.S.' as incorrigibly humorous as ever! The great dramatist 'pulls our leg' delightfully, on arrival for his first visit to South Africa - and then made his first flight."



Capetown, South Africa.



C/U George Bernard Shaw speaking to camera: "Good morning, South Africa. I've been told by a number of friends who have met me just on my landing that you're particularly anxious to see what the animal is really like. Well, here he is, here I am. I am very nearly seventy six years of age. I am a fairly respectable character, considering my political opinions. Now all you want to do is see me, well now you've seen me with my celebrated genial expression. .... You've seen me in full face, now you'd probably like to see me in profile, accordingly I'll turn round. Is that all right? Or do you think you'd like the other profile? I'll give you the other profile and incidentally you'll see the back of my celebrated head. Got that."



Shaw and others walk out of aircraft hanger towards small plane. He climbs onto the wing and into the side door. Inside the plane we can see Shaw looking out of the window. Aerial views of the city below.
