• Short Summary

    Ventriloquist Walter Walters entertains us with his dummies.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone Presents WALTER WALTERS Famous American Exponent Of The ----- Art". (Timecode obscures titles on vhs cataloguing copy.)

    Location of events unknown - see note.

    Ventriloquist Walter Walters is seen in a studio with his dummy. They do a bit of patter together, then Walter does some tricks, such as drinking some water while the dummy makes a continuous noise - how does he do that?! - and smoking a cigarette while the dummy talks. The dummy suggests they go and visit his sister's new baby. Walter comes back into view with a baby puppet that is crying. He feeds it some milk from a bottle and it quietens down.
