Little Boy's Dream

Silent Film

Country: UK

Genre: Drama, Short


A ragged poor boy (Henry Paget) - who, despite his wretched poverty, rather mysteriously has fine quality pyjamas and beautiful, clean bed linen! - has his treasured, possibly only, possession - a model sail boat - wrecked by a delivery man from the firm 'Blogs', who turns out to be a brute.


  • This (unfinished) short film was shot by Lady Caroline Paget, eldest daughter of the 6th Marquis of Anglesey, on the grounds of their country house 'Plas Newydd', in Anglesey, Wales. Lady Caroline and her father shot a number of dramas and home movies over a period of years, always involving members of their family, their friends, and, on at least one occasion, their staff.
  • The ragged poor boy is played by Lady Caroline's kid brother Henry Paget (b. October 1922), who was Earl of Uxbridge before assuming the title of 7th Marquess of Anglesey in 1947 on the death of his father.
  • This short film (approximately 6 minutes in length) can be viewed for free at the BFI website (link below).
