CGiii Comment

Definitely...one for the feminists!

"These womenfolk are so inconsiderate" says the woman dressed as a man!

The quality is remarkable...and, it's loaded with subtext. Considering it was made at the tail-end of The Great War...the decadence and joie-de-vivre on show...quite extraordinary.

And there's an added bonus...it is very funny indeed.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

A teenaged tomboy, tired of being bossed around by her strict guardian, impersonates a man so she can have more fun, but discovers that being the opposite sex isn't as easy as she had hoped.
