Ventriloquist Arthur Prince performs his act with his dummy 'Jim'.
Probably filmed in the Pathe Studios, London.
Ventriloquist Arthur Prince performs his act with his dummy 'Jim'. Both Arthur and 'Jim' are dressed as sailors and the set is dressed as if their were on a warship. Arthur is smoking a cigar to show that he couldn't be saying 'Jim's' lines.
They make jokes about the various ranks in the army. They make jokes about mules. Periods of leave on shore. Leaving loved ones at home. In CU you can see Arthur's lips move.
