In the Year 2000 (1912)Short, Comedy · 17 May 1912
A great number of prognosticators often terrify us with visions of what will be when women shall rule the earth, and the time when men shall be subordinates and adjuncts. It is rather a fine question to decide, for chivalrous men, anyway. Today, with the multiplicity of feminine activities and the constant broadening of feminine spheres, it is difficult to predict to what height women will ascend. In the Solax production of "In the Year 2000," the release of Friday, May 17th, a serio-comic prognostication is unreeled on the screen with such magnetic force, charm and rich imaginative detail that one is compelled to accept the theories advanced on their face value. The conditions are reversed. Women in this film are supreme, and man's destiny is presided over by woman. No attempt is made at burlesque, but the very seriousness of the purpose of the theme makes the situations ludicrous.
