It’s Sunday and You Need to Watch the Dancing Pig
A happy outcome of having this blog is the number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great nephews and nieces of rank and file vaudevillians (and many famous ones) I have gotten to correspond with. A case in point is a grand-daughter of animal impersonator Alfred Latell (read all about him here). Today she shares this 1907 clip of him as “The Dancing Pig.” Watch it here: https://youtu.be/GYF8BKwZj5g
