Fun Edison Boxing Movie

A Scrap in Black and White (1903)

*** (out of 4)

At just under two-minutes this Edison short has a boxing ring set up in someone's backyard where three adults watch a black boy and a white boy box. I'm guessing this here was meant to be some sort of comedy and there are some funny moments throughout, although there's no question that today these adults would have been thrown in jail. Not that there's anything wrong or illegal being done here but times have certainly changed. For the most part this is pretty entertaining as we see the boys go out it and it's clear that both of them are having fun. Notice during the break that the white kid has his chair pulling down the road. The film also ends with water being thrown and it appears neither of the boys knew this was going to happen and their reaction is quite funny.
