The Kid Stakes is based on the Fatty Finn comic strip drawn by Syd Nicholls for the Sydney Sunday News, until his death in 1977. Syd Nicholls is featured in the opening scenes, sketching a cartoon of Fatty.
This charming film is one of the all too few surviving features from Australia's prolific silent film heritage. It's enhanced by the witty inter-titles and gentle humour of the story.
Another great SILENT MOVIE that you and your kids, grandkids and great-grandkids will love.
