  • Short Summary

    The artist Poy draws a cartoon - the audience is invited to guess what it depicts.

  • Description

    £100 cash prize is on offer for this cartoon competition - and other consolation prizes. This is the first of ten cartoons by "Poy" the famous cartoonist. The cartoon represents the title of a well-known song. The competition entrants have to guess the answers to all ten to be in for a chance. "Simply send a postcard to Pathe's, 103 Wardour Street, London W1..."

    Through stop frame animation we see the drawing take shape. It represents a man driving his car into the side of a bank. A gendarme stands close by looking alarmed. A sign on a palm tree reads: Monte Carlo Poy signs the drawing at the bottom. "Did you "get" it?" Six of the original Poy cartoons (framed) are to be awarded as consolation prizes. "Full details on a Poster at this Theatre."

    Note: I "got" it, I "got" it! "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo"! The other ones aren't so easy!

    Safety print only - original decomposed and destroyed.
