  • Short Summary

    Mai Bacon and Edward D'Arcy perform a great rough and tumble dance - Apache style.

  • Description

    A "treat-'em-rough" routine from "The Dollar Princess" at Daly's Theatre in London.

    Intertitle reads: "In Round 1, Olga, the lady Lion-Tamer (Mai Bacon) shows her ideas on lovemaking to the lovesick Bulger (Edward D'Arcy). She lifts him up and throws him around the stage in her passion. She kisses him, staggers around then pushes him onto the ground. In Round 2, "Bulger scores two "knockouts!". He jumps on her, puts his hands around her neck and pretends to throttle her. He then pulls her hair. They then kiss again. She slaps him. A love/hate relationship presumably! A man comes on to the stage and hits Bulger on the back in a friendly fashion. Bulger then throws him around the stage, dropping him on the ground when he realises that it isn't Olga.
