A Sticky Woman

Alice Guy | 1906 | ★★★★½
In Guy’s hilarious post office-set comedy, a lady utilises the tongue of her obliging maid to lick her stamps. Intrigued by the spectacle, a passing gentleman takes a shine to the young servant, and kisses her passionately. However, with her mouth suitably gummy, she immediately becomes stuck to his sizeable moustache, with a pair of scissors being required to extricate her from his fizzog. Brilliantly performed and simply yet beautifully crafted, this irreverent short proves quite delightful.
