Title
Dancing boxing match, Montgomery and Stone /
Summary
Very short vaudeville turn from the well-known team of Montgomery and Stone. Appears to have been filmed outdoors in front of black paper taped up on a wall as a backdrop. Two men box in a comedic manner, with the film opening as one man in a cap punches the other and then ducks behind him. The second man swings wildly through the air, causing him to fall down in an acrobatic shoulder roll that in turn propels him back to a standing position. He turns and finds his opponent, then approaches him swinging as the film ends abruptly.
