Winky and his neighbour fight over a bonfire.


Kinematograph Weekly (20/Aug/1914):

Winky's Next Door Neighbour (C). — The next door neighbour of our hero is an attractive woman, and turning the mangle for her is almost a joy, except when the man over the way insists on burning garden refuse, then the cudgels must be taken up in the defence of weak woman. A hay fork does great execution; there are manoeuvres with a water-tub — in short, a magnificent display by both sides. Honours easy and the lady humoured! Released Sept. 14th, length 395 feet.

The Bioscope (03/Sep/1914):

Winky’s Next Door Neighbour. — A comical tale of warfare over garden hedges. Winky nobly defends his fair neighbour from the surly behaviour of the man next door, a water-tub proving a handy acquisition. (September 14th. 395 ft.)
