Duel to the Death

“In a very similar vein to the same company’s Has He Hit Me? (1898), this startlingly vicious-seeming duel between knife-wielding women was clearly sourced from an existing stage production, thought to be the Drury Lane theatre melodrama ‘Women and Wine’. The actresses are unidentified.”
