Storyline

Public morality, late night cavorting, and a practical joke. A constable and a subway attendant are working late at night in an underground station. A well-dressed man and two well-dressed women of the night enter the platform, and they are soon in trouble for violating public decorum. Another man arrives, carrying a long package. A train arrives to our right and the man with the package boards. Soon, to the consternation of the constable, women's legs (in hose) are on full display. The constable will have none of it. Will there be an arrest? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

She's got legs...
30 March 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Like almost all films from the earliest days of movies, "A Wake in Hell's Kitchen" is very, very short—so short that it's really too short to give a numerical score. At only about a minute, it is actually about average length for the time.

This short just goes to show you that people were jerks—even back in the 'good old days'. This film is unusual because they built an impressive set for the day and it looks like the inside of a subway tunnel. A drunk and two rowdy girls are about to board a train but their obnoxious behavior is noticed by a subway cop. The last straw is when one of the women is apparently sticking her legs out the train car's window…and it ends with an interesting twist. Overall, while the subject matter and set are unusual, the film is clearly typical of comedies of the age— short and with one joke. Worth s peek considering it's so short.
