Charlie Smith has been Punch & Judy man on Margate beach for 50 years.
Part of PURE AND SIMPLE issue.
Various shots of Punch & Judy man, Charlie Smith, repainting his puppets prior to new summer season. Charlie has been working as a puppeteer on the beach for 50 years. We see him place his dog (a scruffy mongrel wearing a ruff). Various shots Punch & Judy show on beach, children sit on the sand watching. M/S of Punch & Judy man at work in his hut during the show. A little girl opens the door to the hut, Charlie shoos her away and mops his sweaty brow.
