Parrot Silent Movie

I dug up this old classic silent film from a hundred years ago of a performing Senegal Parrot. Unbeknownst to the trainer at the time, capital punishment is not the best means of dealing with an insubordinate parrot! I hope you enjoy and please share this one around.

Kili the trick trained marvelous performing Senegal Parrot was cast in the role of the insubordinate ex-parrot. This parrot has ceased to be after being shot by her impatient master. A talented actress with years of experience acting out dying scenes, Kili nailed the part!

Hehee, just seen this as for some reason it wouldn't play earlier. Any plans for more?

this silent film classic was just WAY too cute --- what i liked : - Parrot Wizard Productions has taken over Metro Goldwyn Mayer. my question is, are they aware of this? is it a merger? or is PWP the new MGM ? :lol: -Kili has usurped the roaring lion. What a powerful bird. I thought Senegals were a prey species? - i like the funny on and off fading of the black and white haze - made it look realistic. for a second i thought i was going to see charlie chaplin come on screen. - the antique couch. looks real 1920s, made Kili's role very convincing. - and as usual Kili is looking cute as ever. what a great actress! looking forward to future films featuring her in the title role. what about Truman? hope he gets a role soon too. :senegal:

Actually that was Truman screeching for Kili in the opener. She's a pretty quiet bird but Truman was going off like that during the entire filming. So I used his voice instead.
