The Film Fan

“A L-loaf of bread, a bottle of milk, and come home right away.”

It’s a grand opening of a theater! Their feature film is the broken leg. (It has a large cast) To celebrate this occasion kids are admitted free! (To add to the greatness the theater advertises Looney tunes and “The Ahs of a wizard” Porky is a child in this short and he is on an errand for his mother. He can’t control himself when he learns of the free admission and rushes in.

Porky, meanwhile can’t see the screen where he is and rushes up to the front, where the view is stretched out.

The theater gets a phone call and an employee announces that a little boy is wanted at home by his mother. Upon hearing this, the whole audience runs home.
