  • Short Summary

    Elephant dressed as a mother feeds milk to baby elephant (dog in disguise) in Hamburg.

  • Description

    This is one of several stories found attached to 3rd reel of cuts for the documentary 'LURE OF THE EAST'. It may be the missing item PERFORMING ELEPHANT - 37/96.

    Titles read: "Hamburg".

    An elephant wearing clothes wheels a pram about a town square and rocks it with her trunk. A large crowd of people watch. The elephant picks up a big dummy attached to a vat of milk and puts it in the pram. Whatever is in the pram drinks nearly all the milk.

    The elephant picks up some kind of animal (probably a dog) in a baby elephant suit from the pram and puts it on the ground. The creature runs off. Very weird and creepy.

    Cataloguer's note: I find this sequence rather disturbing and unpleasant.
