  • Short Summary

    A look at turkeys being fattened for Christmas with some very quirky out takes: turkeys in pyjamas and a baby smoking a pipe.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Fond of Turkey? Looks enough for everybody on this great fattening farm".

    Location of events is unknown.

    L/S of flock of turkeys walking up hill. M/S of field full of turkeys pecking at the ground. L/S of man standing amongst the birds throwing grain to them from a sack.

    Cuts / out takes start at 01:57:37. Includes an American Pathe intertitle: "These turkeys march ...", suggesting location of events maybe somewhere in United States of America (USA). Various shots of big flock of turkeys being herded by men on horseback down crowd lined town street. M/S of group of turkeys wearing pyjamas - very odd! Intertitle: "While this little turkey stays home". M/S of little boy pulling a cart. On the cart is a turkey and a baby smoking a pipe! C/U of turkey and pipe smoking baby. Quirky.
