  • Short Summary

    Nervo and Knox get a pasting by a bevy of chorus girls with boxing gloves.

  • Description

    "Introducing briefly (very) our old friends Nervo & Knox, on "visiting rounds" - (on the "Chelsea Follies" front)."

    Low angle M/S of a sign above a theatre which reads "Artistes Entrance". L/S of Nervo and Knox walking in front of the theatre then knocking on the Artistes Entrance door with an umbrella. The door opens and a man comes out. There is a discussion and the man signals that they can't come in Nervo (or Knox) produces a piece of paper and shows it to the doorman. He signals that the pair should wait outside for a moment. They sneak inside.

    "Somehow, the visit missed fire - but the Misses didn't!" Nervo and Knox are chased outside by a bevy of chorus girls. The boys are knocked flying onto the pavement and the girls hit them with their boxing gloved hands! The girls stand in a row in boxing stance with their dukes up! "Never argue with a lady - (when she's got a dozen companions, with boxing gloves on!)" Nervo (or Knox) walks in front of the girls and they all bash him. He loses his hat and runs off. Onlookers are seen in the background. The girls laugh. The other part of the comedy team tries to kiss one of the girls and another knocks his hat off. The girls treat him roughly, one even aims a smart kick at his backside, revealing a shapely leg. More slapstick stuff ensues.
