  • Description

    Full titles read: "For over three centuries the famous Gorno family have reigned supreme as Monarchs of the Marionette. Today Pathetone Weekly has pleasure in presenting The Gornos, in an Operatic Burlesque."

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots show a marionette operatic 'turn' involving three puppets in evening dress, one female and two male, standing beside a piano. Another male puppet sits at the piano and starts to play; after a false start the others stand to attention, and the female puppet starts to sing 'Finiculi, Finicula' - soprano style. The other marionettes join in with the chorus. Whenever she hits a high note, all the puppets leap into the air. Coming to the end of the song, the soprano starts dancing about, the piano joins in, the pianist dances on his piano stool and they all fall down on the last note.
