Billboard Girl on TV on Wednesday

John Popey has spotted that the Talking Pictures channel in the UK (channel 81 or 328 on Sky) is showing "Bring on Bing" at 3.05pm. on Wednesday. This is a Sennett short which we know as Billboard Girl. Very rare to have this on TV.

It was an abridged version. The opening minutes were missing making nonsense of the story. It was in poor condition too and one of Bing's songs was missing. Pity. See the Wikipedia entry for Billboard Girl if you want to know the real story.

It was a bit of a let down. I’d been looking forward to that. I was hoping it would be the first of the Sennett shorts with the rest to follow. Disappointing.
