Self defense class scene

PostFri Aug 18, 2017 6:57 pm

I'm back for some help. A client saw a ladies self defense class scene in a silent film they want to use in a video I'm creating for them. That scene doesn't ring a bell with me. Anyone familiar with such a film that has this scene?

During the Bonner Stummfilmtage in Germay we saw a selection of short films `make more noise` suffragetts in film.

And I remeber a short comedy ' Milling The Militants 1913'

There's a pretty wacky women's boxing match in The Oyster Princess. Probably not what you're after...

Who Is Safe? (1925). Instructional film showing self defense techniques for women.

Not sure if this one survives.
