Organized Chaos

1945 , Gosforth (Tyne and Wear)

The vivid dreams of a henpecked husband.

Amateur filmmaker, cinema historian and railway engineer H.A.V. Bulleid uses trick photography and complex editing techniques in the comic dreamscapes of a henpecked husband and father. Called upon by his wife to deliver a teat for their child, Major Fiasco rushes home. After a series of slapstick occurrences and a surreal baby inspection by Countess Plonk, he settles down to an afternoon nap on a garden chair, where he has vividly chaotic dreams. But when the dog steals the teat, his wife demands he find a replacement by two o'clock. Rushing out, he soon returns to find the whole trip was in vain.

Organized chaos follows the confused serenity of a calm panic. Telegram: "Fiasco, 23 Rose Ave. Gosforth. Come at once. Bring teat. - Utta." "Can't you keep your child quiet, Utta?" "My child." "Really not too bad-looking." "Really quite presentable." "Really almost human." "I wish I could dream a simple pastoral sequence - in exotic Technicolor!" Dawn mists pour swiftly from the waking valley - "Bit public Utta? -- Screen?" "Get another - by 2 o'clock."
