Felix Saves the Day, 1922

Produced by Pat Sullivan Cartoons for M. J. Winkler

Synopsis

Willie Brown’s Nifty Nine have a big game on an afternoon that Willie is tossed in jail for making sport of a cop. With their star behind bars, the Nifty Nine quickly fall behind the Tar Heels, a Black team, at the Polo Grounds before a packed crowd. It’s up to Felix to save the day. But first, he has to get to the park, then he needs an idea. In this mix of animation and live footage of cars, trains, and baseball fans, Felix needs an assist from Jupiter Pluvius.

Note: This is a silent film. Music has been added to mimic the experience of the film patron in 1924.

This film is in the public domain in Australia.
