Interior of a crowded street car. Young lady enters and every man in the car offers her his seat. Presently an elderly stout lady with arm full of bundles enters. All male passengers immediately bury their faces in their papers, while the lady swings on the strap. A sudden jerk of the car lands her in the lap of a dude, much to the amusement of the other passengers. She pulls herself together, only to be thrown sprawling on the dude again. This time she smashes his high hat. The dude leaves the car, and the old lady gathers up her bundles and sits down with a satisfied smile. Written by Edison Catalog

Good Piece of Movie History....
9 October 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

I take a Film History in which at times we watch classic films or just old movies. As much as a movie buff I am, I was excited to here I would this film. The movie is no more than 5 minutes long and is one of the first films to show a woman being treated differently because she isn't as pretty as another woman on the streetcar. Back in the days films like this were considered taboo or just plain wrong, now a days films like that are not what people call a film. I like it! The only way to really see this is through a film course or on the history channel. If you are a huge movie buff and find some way to see this I say see it.
