Female Impersonator
2 September 2013 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

By the following decade, many female impersonators would be shown doing their acts on the stage and in the movies; the Eltinge Theater on 42nd Street in New York is named for Julian Eltinge, the most famous of them. This was probably the earliest "name" example for the movies. Gilbert Saroni plays an exceedingly ugly woman who coyly flirts with her fan. It's very silly.

For some reason, this is listed in the IMDb as "The Old Maid in the Horsecar" with the title "The Old Maid in the Drawing Room" offered as an alternative title.

It's an early credit for Edwin Porter, who would, within a couple of years, start to turn out some highly inventive movies. He is today best remembered for THE GREAST TRAIN ROBBERY. Well, he had to start somewhere.
