For the first part of the week one of the principal pictures here is “The babes in the Wood” a pantomime. It is a colour film, is very beautiful and some of the scenes are presented with a great deal of ingenuity.....A very interesting story for children ”The Shanghied Baby” is another attractive film. It depicts the theft twice in succession of a baby. An old seaman rescues him and takes him on a voyage. The thief is arrested and confesses, and 15 years afterwards the boy goes back to his native country, and finds his real mother.
