  • Description

    (Pathetone main titles.)
    Full titles read: "Meet The wisest bird in the World". (new title) "Juan Tio knows all the right answers. Granting us a special interview - it "tells all"."

    Location of events unknown - United States of America?

    Various shots of a Spanish or South American man talking to a parrot. He asks the bird several questions, getting it to make animal noises and the sound of a traffic cop blowing a whistle. He asks the bird if he saw his sweetheart last night; the parrot says he kissed her and makes a kissing noise. The man then asks "What do the chorus girls do on Broadway?"; the parrot raises a leg and makes a squeaky noise - sounds like "Whoopee!".
