Loading the player...
A film promoting one of the St John Ambulance benefit baby contests popular during the 1930s. "See YOUR BABY On The Screen... Your choice decides!! … Voting Box in foyer…" urge the intertitles.
Short films such as this would have been shown to local audiences as a prelude to feature film screenings.
This particular film was shot at the De Luxe Theatre – now known as the Embassy Theatre – Wellington. A parade of babies and toddlers are shown set against floral backdrops, enthusiastically playing with toys.
