Two cats tastefully box one another...
28 February 2014 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

William Heise and W.K.L. Dickson present their first foray into comedy. A short sample of Professor Welton's vaudeville act, this film shows the Professor's two cats "box" each other. He is seen in the background smiling as the felines go at it.

This was the Edison Manufacturing Company's first stab at a comedic short. Though, of course, very short, I reckon it must have provided a quick laugh for its viewers. The Professor also filmed another short, titled "Wrestling Dog", for the Edison team. However it would be hard to classify the Professor's efforts as funny.

I give it a 2 out of 10.
