Spanish Spasms

The classic Cinderella story takes many forms in motion pictures, and this is an early romantic comedy patterned after the Cinderella syndrome. Young New York City shop girl Mayme Ladd, played by Mabel Normand, is approached by a con-woman who tells fortunes for one dollar to five dollars each. She convinces Mayme that the spirit of a Spanish temptress is inside her and then takes all her money. No matter to poor shop sales girl Mayme, she has dreams of Spanish royalty in her head, so she goes home and lo and behold, she finds a Spanish dancing outfit in an old trunk belonging to her mother. She puts on the outfit and in her mind she becomes a Spanish lady, much to the chagrin of her friend Gwen, who thinks that Mayme has gone mad. Meanwhile, back at the store, in one of the sexiest movie scenes of 1920 Mayme appears behind the counter and appears to have both legs in the air exposed to her thighs pulling up her hose as her legs spread wide. It turns out that she is actually pulling up the hose on mannequin legs, but Doctor Drew, watching from the other side of the counter, is having all kinds of thoughts and perspiring heavily at the sight. When Mayme sees the doctor she thinks that he must be the dark and handsome man that the fortune teller told her she would meet. This leads to that, and on the night of the masquerade ball on a boat cruising the Hudson River Mayme, in her Spanish outfit is spotted by Doctor Drew and they fall in love with each other, but before long her girlfriend Gwen spots her in the Spanish outfit and, determined that she is cuckoo, chases Mayme determined to expose the Spanish temptress. Mayme takes off her outfit and jumps into the river to swim away, leaving Doctor Drew with only the dress that she wore and the memory of her beauty. Will the doctor find the girl who fits the dress? Will the girl with dreams of the Doctor find a way to meet him once again? Will her girlfriend knock all of the Spanish Spasms out of Mayme? Will the Doctor discovers that the Spanish temptress is the same shop girl with her legs in the air? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with gobs of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
