AUNT SALLIE’S WONDERFUL BUSTLE (1901)
Article 4032 by Dave Sindelar
What it is: comic short
Aunt Sallie falls over a railing. Can her bustle save her?
You know, when your movie’s fantastic content consists solely of a visual gag, it’s rather difficult to argue that it’s legitimately genre. However, when your movie is one minute long and the whole point of it is that single gag, at least you can argue for inclusion a little more convincingly. I hope this doesn’t mean I’m going to be covering a rash of bouncing bustle movies; I don’t think you can really go very far with the concept. And, once again, it will probably take you longer to read this review than watch the movie on YouTube, where I found it.
