Early Cinema with a Feminine Touch
12 March 2002 | by (Swansea, IL) – See all my reviews

An interesting early short film directed by pioneer filmmaker Lois Weber. The story simply surrounds a woman who conducts research about male courtship rituals. There may have been more footage that was lost but the surviving print carries the story. Its kind of silly for today's standards but an interesting piece of early cinema nonetheless. It is also worthy in that it features a rare surviving performance of Margarita Fischer, a matinee star of the silent era.
