Storyline

A spoof of Bizet's Carmen. Somewhere in Spain, a young girl gets the better of the neighborhood boys, then, dressed as a fashionable senorita, visits a club where a boy is demonstrating a tango. She joins him to the enjoyment of the spectators. In act 2, she's dressed as a matador and presents herself at the arena to General della Bambinodi Carradavadoves, a man who knows bulls. She fights one and finds that her sword isn't strong enough to stab him. In the excitement, the General falls from the stands, and he and the child must face the brute. Is there an escape?

Carmen, Jr. (1923)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mildly charming take-off on the Carmen story has Baby Peggy playing a Senorita in Mexico who first must find a man to take care of her and then she finds herself fighting a bull. If you take CARMEN, JR. too serious then you're probably going to be offended by some of the stuff you see. This is especially true during the first half of the short when Baby Peggy is seen dressed as an adult and acting rather sexual as she wants to find a man. I'm sure this here was meant to be innocent and this type of thing (children playing adult) happened throughout this period but it doesn't sit too well today. I thought the rest of the film was pretty charming including the finale with Baby Peggy having to fight the bull. This led to a couple funny sequences including a rather violent one where the young child (actually a dummy) gets thrown around. The highlight of the film happens in the first half when Peggy is spinning around dancing and it's clear that she gets dizzy and starts staggering all over the place. If you watch the extras you can tell that several have smiles on their faces watching her. This "real" moment is easily the highlight.
