  • Description

    Note: Probably filmed in the Pathe studio.

    Ronald Frankau introduces the item.

    The action takes place in studio set of Spanish Bar.

    A man staggers to the bar looking quite drunk. A young lady sits on bar stool, the man staggers up and pats her on the chin. The woman moves away looking shocked. Another man pushes the drunken man to the ground. Mayhem ensues as the other male member of the Locarno acrobatic foursome (The Locarno Four) throws the man across the floor of the bar. Several shots of some acrobatic fighting.

    A woman screams as a chair is thrown at a man in checked shirt. Good C/Us of couples looking very dramatically shocked at the fighting going on around them. Two men hold the woman on a table swing her back and forth and throw her across the room. The man in the checked shirt catches her safely. Various more shots of fighting stunts. The young lady spends most of her time being spun in circles and lifted upside down. C/Us of people watching and drinking.
