  • Short Summary

    Wacky model of the Kaiser which looks like a man in a suit of armour. Is made to move by remote control - excellent!

  • Description

    London.

    Item title reads: "A wonderful invention. Captain Roberts demonstrates his figure of the Kaiser that moves and walks in response to light waves."

    MS CU full size model of the Kaiser in dress uniform moving along street. A group of men stand and watch as Captain Roberts points his remote control device at the model. The model is fantastic! Very funny! Almost looks like a man wearing a suit of armour. Made me laugh! It moves around on wheels - almost like roller skates. At one point the arms of the automaton suddenly fly up - one of the spectators looks alarmed as the Kaiser approaches him. Excellent stuff - very eccentric!
