Popular radio and variety ventriloquist, A. C. Astor, performs with sailor dummy. The dummy is sitting on a bench holding baby, there is a set of the River Thames behind him. The dummy tells Astor a sad tale about being in love with a ship mates' girlfriend. He goes on to explain that a woman left her baby with him for 10 minutes and has not returned. The dummy then sings a sentimental song - "Spike Sullivan's Girl". Quite depressing!
