OVERLOOKED PUPPETS: THE LIMEJUICE MYSTERY or WHO SPAT IN GRANDFATHER'S PORRIDGE? (1930)

Here's a first for this blog:  a Sherlock Holmes Herlock Sholmes mystery done totally with marionettes!  It also features the lovely Anna May Wong Anna Went Wrong.  Much of the action takes place in a Limehouse Limejuice opium den.  I have no idea where grandfather's porridge fits into this 9-minute extravaganza.

Original.

Witty.

Weird.

A lot of references I just didn't get, maybe because I'm not a 1930 Brit.

This one appears to be a love-it or a hate-it with no middle ground.

Enjoy.  (Or not.)
