  • Description

    Titles read: "CINETOPICALITIES IN BRIEF".

    Various locations of events.

    Several shots outside and inside "a large and richly ornamented mansion" in Vienna, Austria, show the royal insignia of the Hapsburgs, including the royal crowns and the Star Jewel. Commentator says "With recent European developments in mind, a peep at Austria's famous treasure house may be more than usually interesting".

    At Annan in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, we see a cottage that was built in a day, on 4 June 1819.

    C/Us of two little piglets, one black and one white, feeding from a bottle. then eating from a bowl with two cats, and a dog. One of the cats washes herself next to the white piglet as commentator explains the cat is mothering the orphan pigs after losing her kittens. The piglet nibbles on the cat's ear. (Location of events unknown.)

    At Maidstone Zoo in Kent we see a baby elephant taking a drink of milk from a bucket held by a little boy. The boy then feeds a bun to the elephant. A baby sits on a blanket on the ground and stares at the elephant - who stares back!
