A child puts black lead on their sleeping father's face.


The Bioscope (17/Jun/1915):

Hilda’s Busy Day. — Chiefly remarkable for the enabling of many impish tricks played upon various people, including near relatives, by clever little Baby Langley. Splendidly photographed, and should appeal very strongly wherever this style of boisterous comedy is appreciated. A pleasing half-reel comic, and by no means overdone. (August 5th. 492 ft.)

Kinematograph Weekly (17/Jun/1915):

Hilda’s Busy Day (C). — (Bamforth). — Uncle receives a tennis ball in his eye and is by no means pleased with the present. Papa takes Hilda in his arms, but the little mischief daubs his face with blacklead which she has previously smeared on her hands. As a consequence, papa receives much amused notice from people he meets on his way to the office, and elsewhere. Released August 5th, length 492 ft.
