Winky and the "Dwarf (?)" (1914)
- Reginald Switz — Winky
The 2006 BBC documentary Holmfirth Hollywood includes footage from this short film. In the segment, "Winky" finds a couple of men having a picnic and also nearby a burly sleeping tramp. In order to steal the picnic, he disguises the tramp as a dwarf by burying the lower part of the tramp's legs in a hole and encourages the couple to go and see the sleeping "dwarf". Angry at then being woken by the laughing men, the tramp steals their clothes.
No details were found in trade journals or newspaper archives for this title. It may be that this was an unreleased film that was recovered from the items acquired by the BFI in 1965.
