• Short Summary

    Ventriloquist Arthur Prince and his puppet in a Navy routine.

  • Description

    No titles; introduction has been cut.

    Probably London, Pathe Studio.

    Various shots of ventriloquist Arthur Prince and his puppet (usually known as 'Jim') in a routine about a sailor ('Jim') being reprimanded by a Naval officer (Prince). Prince has a cigar in his mouth for most of the act.

    Note: I find this act quite sinister, for reasons I can't quite explain!

    Main story is followed by an unidentified comedian on a stage introducing (01:16:44 - 01:17:32), Charlie Kunz of the Casani Club - this act does not follow, or even belong to this issue, so perhaps this section is taken from a later compilation.

    "Casani Club" should read Cassani Club.
