Storyline

A vaudeville act. Trixie Friganza performs first a story and then a song. For the story, she wears a wide-brimmed had and a matching diaphanous shawl. She tells of a visit to a friend who has a five-year old son. The mother tells Trixie a tale of stepping out on her husband, and to conceal the story from the boy, spells out key words. By the story's end, mom is in for a surprise and Trixie has a moral for us. Then, the hat and shawl come off, a base fiddle comes out, and Trixie sings us a comic song about her first two husbands.

Trivia

Because the entire soundtrack of this film survives, the print shown on Turner Classic Movies substitutes a still of Trixie Friganza during the first 100 seconds of her monologue. They explained that part of the footage was lost because of nitrate decomposition. See more »

Introducing Trixie Friganza
16 October 2007 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Trixie Friganza was a vaudeville headliner who had a substantial career in silent films as well. Her career tapered off during the sound era, my guess would be because of health issues. Her last film was the Bing Crosby feature film If I Had My Way and a number of former vaudeville headliners did some small bits in that film because the storyline involved a family of performers.

In My Bag o' Trix she does a couple of delightful numbers, one of them accompanying herself on a bass fiddle. She was a full figured gal in the tradition of Sophie Tucker. Had a talk/singing style similar to her as well.

I'm glad this short subject was saved for the most part although the first few minutes are apparently lost forever.
