22½ minutes into the movie......

This is too funny:

22½ minutes into the movie you'll notice a "couple" walk into frame from the left and out to the right.

You will notice that the "woman" is not a woman but a man in period-correct dress and wearing a bonnet.

I wonder if the producers ran out of female extras and stuck one of the lighting-men in something. It is really too funny.....

***If it isn't truly a man then it's the tallest and ugliest woman that I've EVER seen. LOL!


Maybe it was Hope Emerson. I know, I'm a cold-hearted meanie.

Hey folks,

You know, there is a way both of you could be correct. Did you ever consider the possibility that Hope Emerson was really a man? Could be.

Best wishes,

Hmmm, interesting theory David.

Have you ever heard the rumor that Mae West was really a man?


Since Mae West was an early practitioner of useing the "sponge" as a form of birth control, I have my doubts about the possibility of her being a man. She also had an abortion after becoming pregnant by Guido Deiro, a musical entertainer. Where is this so-called rumour to be found?
