Lively Affair, A (1912)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A very early short from Warner Bros. shows a group of women as they try to become more independent and not just be looked at as the lesser sex. The women make their husbands clean the house and watch the kids as they gather for a night of poker playing but two of the women get into a fight. The police are eventually called and the women are thrown in jail where the husbands try to prove a point that they are women and not men. This film was clearly written and directed by men as it's clear this movie is making fun of women wanting equal rights. For the most part the film comes off charming and the ending is rather funny, although I'm sure women at the time weren't laughing.
