• Short Summary

    Gladys Merredew performs a comical monologue about what a 10-month-old baby is thinking.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - the well-known Comedy Entertainer Gladys Merredew in "The Baby's View of Things".'

    Location of events unknown - probably London, Pathe studio.

    Child impressionist Gladys Merredew, looking quite elegant in an evening gown, introduces her act as an impression of what a 10-month-old baby is thinking. She then goes through the monologue in a baby voice to piano accompaniment. It is quite funny, probably more so because Miss Merredew's 'baby body language' looks quite comical while she is dressed in an evening frock! There is a short break in the visuals (01:46:47 - 01:46:52); soundtrack continues.

    (Followed by Pathetone end titles.)
