  • Short Summary

    Remarkable footage of a woman who produces electricity with her body.

  • Description

    No title.

    Thelmina the Electric Woman and her partner George Rathbone perform various astounding feats involving electricity. Thelmina makes an electric current with her body that enables her to illuminate light bulbs, light cigarettes and set fire to a piece of paper with the heel of her shoe. Very bizarre. Thelmina wears a great sparkly outfit and tiara.

    Note: there is a copy of this story at the National Film and Television Archive - possibly with title. According to their records this was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 309 - dated 1927.

    Safety print only.
