Winky’s Cat (C). — (Bamforth). — A rich spinster advertises for a cat. Winky steals some of the properties from the local pantomime, and with his brother’s aid soon becomes a merry mariner with an enormous cat. He extorts money from the old girl, who is delighted with the animal. She, poor thing, is disillusioned that evening when the cat plays his tricks on her, and she pays the sailor to take the cat away again. The stage manager and the police, however, are on the watch, and Winky and the cat are caught. Released Jan. 4th, length 650 ft.

The sailor who brought the animal “from abroad” and Winky are sharing the proceeds, when they are arrested by the police, with the manager as witness. (January 4th. 650 ft.)
