The Hooligan & The Lady
1913. True story. Miss Florence LeMar, Kiwi vaudevillian, has an epiphany. Discovering the health-giving and life-saving benefits of the Ancient Oriental Arts she is compelled to share them with the world.
Fearless, unstoppable, and armed with her apocryphal handbook, 'The Life and Adventures of Miss Florence LeMar - The World’s Famous Ju-Jitsu Girl', Flossie and husband Joseph Gardiner tour their popular star turn, 'The Hooligan and the Lady'. It is a sensation.
For a wager of one hundred pounds, formidable Flossie takes challenges from the floor. Many try, none succeed. The story of a love affair, antipodean vaudeville and the latent ability of the feminine species to knock twenty different kinds of nonsense out of brutes and bad men everywhere.
