A Charming Trifle
4 November 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This little short shows an entirely different society from the one we are used to, one in which a woman coyly throws her hat into the water to attract a man's attention, where lovers exchange tintypes, and in which, when they wish to neck at the beach, they use umbrellas to hide their activities from passersby. The leads are having fun and Jean the Vitagraph dog is a handsome, intelligent actor -- with a nose job and implants she could be the rage in the 21th century.
