  • Description

    Titles read: 'PEEPS THROUGH THE WINDOW OF THE WORLD'.

    Various locations of events.

    In a zoo in the United States of America we see various shots of two Barbary sheep from Africa - looks like mother and child. We then see a mother and baby zebra - very cute! A 3-day-old elk is seen, being held up on its wobbly legs by a keeper - it looks like a little deer.

    In Paris we see children watching a puppet show. It starts off as Punch and Judy, then goes into a sort of futuristic marionette show, with several black masked puppets seeming to be against one dressed in white. Commentator admits "What it was all about we don't know - something like the 'Triumph of Virtue', we believe". The children look awed.

    In the Pathe Studio, London, we see tap dancer Charles Parker, in white tie and tails, doing a tap routine on several record discs on the floor. Commentator says he "cannot break records"! The routine is pretty fast; the tune is '42nd Street' played on the xylophone.
