• Short Summary

    Comedy trampolinist Ernest Dillon does a routine showing the morning after the night before.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone Presents ERNEST DILLON 'Public Bounder No. 1.'"

    London, probably Pathe Studio.

    Comedy trampolinist Ernest Dillon is asleep in bed when he is woken up by an alarm clock. He is wearing a top hat with a night-gown. Commentator says Ernest went to "a bottle party" last night. Ernest eventually gets up, takes his night-shirt off to reveal his suit underneath. He then does lots of funny acrobatic clowning on his bed, which is actually a trampoline, leaping about and turning somersaults, jumping right off the 'bed' in one stunt.
