Ladies' Skirts Nailed to a Fence

5.1/10 IMDB

A century before Little Britain's Emily and Florence first assaulted our screens, a pair of equally unconvincing transvestites could be spotted in this short comedy. Our cross-dressing housewives are enjoying a gossip before they're abused by a couple of men. The film doesn't make clear why they deserve this attack, but an accompanying set of cards produced by the production company indicates that the ladies were engaged in a discussion about the then-pressing political issue of women's suffrage.
