display_descriptionGeorge, a ventriloquist dummy, recounts his life story, starting with his humble beginnings in 1930, through his successful vaudeville years, and the horrible family secret he is forced to keep while lying, unused, in the Fisher's dusty attic, until he is found by eleven-year-old George, who gives the dummy back his voice.
