  • Short Summary

    Poy (?) draws a cartoon for the Pictorial Cartoon Competition.

  • Description

    No title. An unnamed artist stands at an easel and draws a cartoon. By process of animation we see the cartoon being drawn. I think the artist is "Poy". The cartoon is of a moustached gentleman sitting on a chair on a pedestal. Over his head is a banner which reads: "Museum of Marvels". He is exhibit A and a crowd of people look up at him. Two posters on the wall read: "This extraordinary creature 1) has not received the O.B.E. 2) Has never heard of Mr Bottomley 3) Did not invent the tank 4) Has never been to the pictures." Very short segment - story incomplete.

    Note: not mentioned on tin list. This could very possibly be one of the 10 drawings in the "Pathe Pictorial Cartoon Competition" - see other items of that name.
