Titles read: 'Now Pathe Pictorial has pleasure in presenting - Rudy STARITA and his new "Octarimba" In melodies of long ago'.



Pathe Studio, London.



Several shots of Rudy Starita playing his new instrument, the 'Octarimba', which looks like a wooden xylophone. Commentator says Rudy used it for a broadcast performance only recently, and this is the first time he has been filmed using it. It sounds like a shimmery glockenspiel.



Two musicians, one on the steel lap guitar and another on the accordion, accompany Rudy as he plays a medley of old tunes - 'Roses of Picardy', 'Love's Old Sweet Song' and 'First Call of Spring'.
