16. Rutland Barrington as "Pooh-Bah" in "The Mikado".

Scope and Content

One cigarette card with illustration of Rutland Barrington.

Text on the reverse of the card reads:

Will always be associated with memories of Gilbert and Sullivan operas; for many years he played in the whole series, except "The Yeoman of the Guard"; his rendering of the famous part "Pooh-Bah" in "The Mikado" being, perhaps, one of his greatest triumphs.His admirably-refined style, and great gift of natural humour, made him an ideal exponent of "Gilbert and Sullivan" characters. Not only is he a distinguished actor, but he has produced numerous stage pieces, finding time, also, to contribute regularly to the pages of Punch.
