Hooligan And The Lady, The
1911. a story true. The scourge of brutes, bullies and badmen alike; afeared by ruffians and rowdies across the land: Flossie leMar has many ways to make evildoers relent. a visionary with pronounced ideas about the role of women under attack, Flo is a force to be reckoned with. Chief amongst her interests is one Joseph Gardiner, pugilist, wrestler and Master of the Oriental arts. armed with her apocryphal handbook, The Life and adventures of Miss Florence leMar, the World's Famous Ju-Jitsu Girl, Flo and Joe are a vaudeville sensation. See her sort out a thieving fiend! Marvel at her magnificent dispatching of a dangerous desperado! Cheer her on as she quells a cannibalistic lunatic! a coruscating, scintillating display from the first person to teach self defence to women in aotearoa New Zealand. This is the story of a love affair; antipodean vaudeville; and the latent ability of the feminine species to knock twenty different kinds of nonsense out of scoundrels and villains everywhere.
