  • 1898 Edison motion picture
  • Description (from the Edison Catalog): "Shows Curtis and Gordon in one of their cleverest acts. Miss Belle Gordon holds the Police Gazette medal as Champion Lady Bag Puncher of the World. The bout is a combination of popular leads and blows used by all pugilists, and the grace and ease with which Miss Gordon does a cross-under or throws an upper-cut or an under-cut at Billy Curtis, is so quick and clever that one wishes the round was three times longer. From the handshake to the finish it is refined, scientific and a genuine comedy. Belle is as frisky a little lady as ever donned a boxing outfit, and her abbreviated skirts, short sleeves and low necked waist make a very jaunty costume. Plenty of action and sure to be a great favorite."
