  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    A midget comes out onto a set, he is fighting with a very tall man - and winning. The tall guy runs off and another man in a suit comes onto the stage. He enters into a jokey conversation with the short man. A troupe of singing and dancing midgets / dwarfs come onto the stage and sing a song. A female dwarf gives her impression of 'a Hollywood party given by Florence Desmond' - she does impressions of various female stars including Greta Garbo. The troupe then sing another song. The very tall guy comes out and says 'Time Gentlemen please.' (This is duplicate of PSP 933 FRED ROPER AND HIS WONDER MIDGETS - see separate record for details - SL).

    Two men come out onto the set and try to figure a riddle about a man jumping. One of them leaves the stage. The remaining man does some tricks with his bowler hat. He them takes of his jacket and does some juggling. He's not a bad juggler.
