This film, which unfortunately does not survive, is one of William Haggar's early comedies. He was to make a series of Weary Willie and Tired Tim films, featuring his sons Walter as Weary Willie and Jim as Tired Tim. Other titles include Weary Willie and Tired Tim turned barbers, and Weary Willie and Tired Tim at the races. The characters were based on those in a comic strip by Tom Browne, one of England's earliest comic strips. Many other early film-makers made films about these two comic characters. For further details, see my book, William Haggar, fairground film-maker, to be published by Accent Press Ltd. in May 2007. For further details, visit www.williamhaggar.co.uk
