It was done in a studio format with no audience, one effect at a time, without the audience interaction it loses a lot of energy. Also he wasn't in good health by then and not at his prime by any reach of the imagination. I am persuming the "I thank you" was a cue to the camera people that he was through with the routine as these were shot one at a time and not as part of a continuous show. You also have to take into account that in early filming of these "masters" they often did not have the control over the camera. As such the angles, framing and staging would go lacking. I noticed several of Uncle Harry's routines done during the filming from which those clips were taken lacked much of his actual stage decoration when he was on the road with his show. [/quote]
