Champagne Charlie

A FILM BY Alberto Cavalcanti


To the boisterous, gaslit London of the 1860's came Joe Sanders and his brother Fred to seek their fortunes. They came from Leybourne in Yorkshire, where Fred was a local prizefighter. At the old Elephant and Castle Joe contrived an interview with Tom Sayers, the boxing champion. Fred was given a tryout. But he failed to impress the champion and returned home. Joe remained at the Elephant, engaged as a singer and went on to success.
