• Short Summary

    Funeral for a child gunned down by gangsters in a New York Street.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "New York. Gangsters - baby killers - a nation stirred at last!! Pathe Gazette presents, exactly as shown by us, throughout America - narrative and picture which vividly (as no written word could do) brings home to us here the lesson - and dire peril of gangster warfare."

    New York, United States of America (USA).

    Crowds in street watch as coffin of small child is carried out to waiting cars. Pan up to show people watching from windows.

    MS of coffin being carried by boys.

    Top views of procession of boys in white behind coffin.

    Friends and family kneel by wreaths of flowers.

    More shots of people in street.

    Tilt down church as coffin is carried out. The weeping mother and other mourners follow the coffin.

    The mother kneels by the graveside. She is so anguished that she has to be restrained from throwing herself into the grave. More shots after she has calmed down a little. Flowers are piled on the grave.

    N.B. Story end abruptly - the scenes of the mother are really shocking.
