    "What's going to happen when the girls take to boxing and try to settle their arguments with the gloves? This, perhaps..."

    Comedy sketch involving two women boxers and a referee. The ref kisses one of the women for luck and she takes a swipe at him. The girls fight - they seem to be wearing short dressing gowns over underwear. They wear high heels. The girls fight in a funny style and the ref gets a few punches in the process. Much swinging of arms and head grips.

    One of the girls gets punched in the chest, she falls and as she does so the other kicks her on the butt. She falls to the ground looking stunned. The other girl then whacks the referee and he goes down too. He stands up again and the girl speaks to the other who is on the ground. Pretty funny stuff.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 500.

    Note: this item is loose in the can, not part of the main reel. 16mm neg exists - possibly with an added soundtrack, to be checked.
