Storyline

A vaudeville routine: two denizens of the Bowery dance while under the influence. She's wearing a light dress with a full skirt. He wears a white sport coat and tie. Both have hats. On a small stage, she approaches him gingerly, leaning forward. He grabs her close, she leans into him, and he waltzes her around. In her alcohol-induced haze, she hasn't much animation. He wheels her around, his leg behind hers so he can dip her off balance. Back upright, he lets her go and she stands leaning forward; he leans into her and the wobbly movement continues. They stand apart. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Bowery Waltz (1897)

*** (out of 4)

Fun Edison short runs just over thirty-seconds but contains some pretty big laughs. I'm pretty sure the film is meant to be serious as it shows a man taking a woman and the two dancing. Yes, that's all the do but it's hilarious because I'm really not sure what type of dance they're trying to do and it appears the woman is either drunk or terrified of being in front of a camera. The weird dance gets some pretty good laughs even though I doubt it was intended to.
