Wine and Cheese Silent Movie Night: The Kid Stakes (1927)

The Kid Stakes (1927) (Trove: Sunday Times (Sydney), 19 June 1927, page 26 )

After a brief introduction by our Local History Officer, examining the production of the film and childhood in the 1920s, sit back and enjoy this silent movie based on the popular and long-running Australian comic strip ‘Fatty Finn’.

Fatty Finn, the six-year-old leader of a gang of kids in Woolloomooloo, enters his pet goat in the annual goat derby, but his rival Bruiser Murphy lets the goat loose. A glimpse into childhood in bygone days.
