Storyline

Angeline was the daughter of wealthy parents, and a coquette. Max is deeply in love with her, but the young lady is so fickle, that although Max has proposed many times, she has never given him a decided answer. Time and time again, the poor fellow has offered his heart and hand, but to no avail. Angeline thinks that Max is too much of a dilettante, and finally in a spirit of mischief, she replies to one of his numerous proposals by telling him that she will never marry until he has learned to juggle three balls. Even the remonstrances of her father fail to move her from her declaration. Poor Max! He knows very well that this is practically out of the question. Nevertheless, he decides to make an attempt, and after visiting a stoic wherein he buys the requisite number of balls, he hies him home and spends hours and hours in the vain attempt to master the mysteries of the juggler.

What sort of plot is this?!
16 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Max inexplicably wants to marry a very obnoxious woman. Instead of saying yes or no, she says she'll marry him if he learns to juggle! What?! How does this make any sense at all!? He tries but cannot, so at the end he comes up with a dumb plan that is very obvious.

Max Linder was a very funny Frenchman and he made some wonderful films. However, here with "The Little Vixen" he's come up with a seriously bad clunker. The plot makes absolutely no sense whatsoever (at least not here on planet Earth), it's not particularly funny and the juggling scene at the end is sloppily done. I sure hope that if you are new to the man's films you try watching some of his better ones first!
