    The late Miss Billie Carleton - Part 1.

    Title frame: The Late Miss Billie Carleton. CU of woman; head & shoulders; against all-black BG. Miss Carleton is an actress. Here we see her demonstrating a range of emotion; this is hilariously funny at moments. She talks; with eyes rolled upward; makes a facial expression which could be a smile or grimace. Next she suddenly has a sick; stricken look; clutching her heart a la melodrama; and speaking as she tilts her head back Now shot of Miss C. down to below hips; she is holding a black cat and squeezing it against her. Miss C. looks rapturous; the cat looks mad. Agony and ecstasy and love of pets; Miss C. can do it all.

    Cataloguer's note: Some footage in this item is duplicated.
