Overview

Chrissie White, one of Hepworth Studios' biggest stars, heads up this feisty battle-of-the-sexes comedy about an independent young lady who, for the sake of a rich husband, poses as the epitome of Victorian femininity - weak, docile and submissive. But when he steps out of line the gloves come off to reveal 'Physical Culture Phyllis', who punches well above her weight!
