    Performing chimp eats soup, drinks beer and smokes a cigarette.

  • Description

    Performing chimpanzee wearing a suit does various funny things for the camera.

    Firstly we see him sitting at a dinner table eating a bowl of soup. He then pours himself a glass of beer and drinks it. He wipes his face with a serviette. "There's nothing suits him better than a nice quiet puff - " he is seen smoking a cigarette (this section decomposed so only a few frames remain). The chimp begins sewing (again - decomposed so only a few frames). Very short segment - incomplete.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 654.
