Was Billy Barty in "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935)? (video)

In "Bride of Frankenstein", the mad Dr. Pretorius shows off his strange miniature creations to Henry Frankenstein.

There's a queen, a king, an archbishop, a devil, a ballerina, and a mermaid.

But he didn't stop there...not originally, anyway.

Because director James Whale also filmed a bit with famed 3-foot 9-inch "little person" Billy Barty… a tiny artificially-created baby in a high chair.

And in a wide shot of all of Dr. Pretorius' creations... can see Billy in his high chair from behind, waving happily. 

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
