  • Description

    "Meet him - what a singer!...and what an audience! The little ones are foundlings." Truly horrendous child sings a horrible song sitting on a piano! Other orphaned children sit around and listen. Some look as if they feel the same way about it as I do. C/U of the child. He wears a hat with an embroidered panel around the edge - supposed to look cute I expect. Shots of the child singing are intercut with shots of the fidgeting child audience. A young woman plays the piano. One of the toddlers drops off to sleep in the middle of the song. This film is presumably shot in an orphanage in America.

    Note: precocious, moi?
