Strange Affair of Adelaide Harris, The

TWO VICTORIAN boys carelessly leave baby sister (Adelaide) in an orphanage in Georgian-era Brighton, in the hands of a boffiny, know-all boy in stripy trousers and a top hat. They then carelessly spend several weeks trying to get her back. FREDDIE JONES is on hand to shout and point and wave a gouty leg (called “Boot”) at all and sundry. One scene featured a play being performed to a load of old straw-stuffed dummies who promptly came to life, scaring all five-year-old viewers shitless.
