Sometimes, the best way to deal with a situation is to deliver a good, swift kick. That’s exactly what these silent stars do.
Let’s start with an amusingly animated title card from the Enid Bennett drama The Woman in the Suitcase. No physical kick but the next best thing.
The Oz films produced by L. Frank Baum are definitely unique and The Magic Cloak of Oz features some of the weirder sequences with soup fanciers attempting to take over a city. They didn’t figure on a pantomime donkey.
Bessie Love delivers a swift kick in the pants as the heroine of the supremely weird The Mystery of the Leaping Fish.
Mary Pickford demonstrates her ability with plate-kicking. Impressive height considering that heavy beaded skirt!
We are all the grumpy little rabbit in Bully for Pink.
