Storyline

A spoof of Bizet's Carmen. Somewhere in Spain, a young girl gets the better of the neighborhood boys, then, dressed as a fashionable senorita, visits a club where a boy is demonstrating a tango. She joins him to the enjoyment of the spectators. In act 2, she's dressed as a matador and presents herself at the arena to General della Bambinodi Carradavadoves, a man who knows bulls. She fights one and finds that her sword isn't strong enough to stab him. In the excitement, the General falls from the stands, and he and the child must face the brute. Is there an escape?

Baby Peggy
4 December 2012 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Just about the last silent movie star still alive today, (December of 2012) is "Baby Peggy" Montgomery. Her career resembled that of Shirley Temple a dozen years later -- indeed, at least one of her features, "Captain January", was remade with Miss Temple in the lead.

Before she went into features, she had a career in short subjects. However, while some of the shorts that Miss Temple were in, directed by Charles Lamont, whiff of a sexuality that disturbs me -- call it post-Millennial hypersensitivity if you will -- Baby Peggy was always a child playing at being an adult. In this one she dances a tango -- and passes out from exertion; she fights a bull in the bull ring -- and the bull is clearly an adult in costume. The result is a charming short subject that made me chuckle.
