One day, while sightseeing, Miss Travis finds in an old curio shop, a box, the exact duplicate of one owned by her aunt. She hurries home with her find, expecting to meet the doctor, but receives a note in which he says he will be professionally busy and unable to see her that afternoon. Piqued at her lover, she plans vengeance and is idly ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Gay comedy.
28 March 1999 | by DukeEmanSee all my reviews

The first gay film ever made? Possibly. A woman pops a few exotic pills that enhances her with sexual male behaviour . She takes a fancy to women, creating a slight stir. But to get into their pants she has to dress as a male. Maybe the first ever cross dressing film? Light screwball farce with the usual over-the-top acting from silent flics. By the way. Director Sidney Drew happens to be Drew Barrymore's great Grandfather or Uncle or something like that!
