Overview

This charming piece of staged chaos has been very modestly named indeed: the stars aren't the men but the children. The film would be a candidate for an early example of the public wind-up film if it weren't so obvious that the aggrieved apple salesman is not only enjoying himself, but might even be a member of the filmmaking team. The children, on the other hand, jostle for position, perhaps hoping to see themselves on the screen later. The

film has been tentatively attributed to Arthur Cheetham, the first producer-exhibitor in Wales.
