Carmen, Jr. (1923)
11min · Comedy, Short · 29 August 1923
A spoof of Bizet's Carmen. Somewhere in Spain, a young girl gets the better of the neighborhood boys, then, dressed as a fashionable senorita, visits a club where a boy is demonstrating a tango. She joins him to the enjoyment of the spectators. In act 2, she's dressed as a matador and presents herself at the arena to General della Bambinodi Carradavadoves, a man who knows bulls. She fights one and finds that her sword isn't strong enough to stab him. In the excitement, the General falls from the stands, and he and the child must face the brute. Is there an escape?
