-  From the New York clipper, 12/26/03, p. 5: Mlle. Latina, whom Eugene Sandow characterizes as a type of "the perfect woman," is a more than ordinary contortionist, and saves a rather repellant specialty by the pleasant manner in which she performs her work. This little lady does her work in a clever and most finished style, her costumes are always bright, clean, and attractive looking. She is engaged as a special feature with Neil Burgess' "County Fair" Co. this season.
-  No production record or catalog number exists for this film; it appears to have been shot as part of "Latina, contortionist-act-with-rings," which was split into "Latina, contortionist" and "Latina, dislocation act" for copyright.
