Indiscernible buildings. Title: "Eine Indianer Geschichte, mit Alfred Voshkamp u Herbert Birkenbeul" [An Indian Story, with Alfred Vosskamp and Herbert Birkenbeul]. Several boys make a home Cowboys-and-Indians movie. Three boys, one wearing an Indian head-dress, lie on the grass, pretending to hide. A boy dressed as a frontiersman comes along. The three Indians run up, take hold of the frontiersman and tie him to a tree. A fifth boy wearing wearing a cap and driving goggles comes to the rescue, using his toy gun to easily overpower the three unarmed Indians. The odds are stacked in his favor; it is all over in a matter of seconds. The savior ties the three Indians together and hauls them off.
