This is a show, and they're playing on the stage.
This would be 1903.
I watch a lot of movies from the 1920s, 30s, 40s. This looks like it would be the end of the 1800s.
They are actors.
It's a show.
It's staged. It's not a real fight.
It's an artistic endeavor.
It looks like part of a backyard that's been fenced off with sheets to make a stage.
They have a lot of people looking at them, and the music is very heavy and sad.
The music is, "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles." That was the theme music from "Public Enemy" with James Cagney and "Women in Love" with Glenda Jackson.
I've heard that song, but I'm not familiar with where it comes from.
The three people have some food on the table, and they are watching.
There's wine on the table.
I think they have medicine on the table because they are fighting.
The woman is Clara, and the man is George.
The man is Albert, and the woman is Stephanie.
Only very special people would go see this show.
I should imagine people in the neighborhood, both adults and children.
I think a lot of men who like to fight are watching.
I fought Oscar de la Hoya!
I never go to see a sad movie. I like to see happy things.
I don't think it's a movie. It's a staged play.
There's a reason they're doing this; it's a still photograph.
There will be an article about it this in the newspaper, and it will say that this was not a very good show.
When I was young, our entertainment was in the living room, or the play room, and there wasn't anything to look at. We listened to the radio, so words gave you the story and the sound.
None of my friends listen to the radio.
I don't know who will win.
You never know with a fight, because she's not dressed in appropriate clothing.
But in those days, it wouldn't matter, because women weren't supposed to do that.
Because this is a show, neither one is stronger. When it's over, they'll just bow to each other.
It's interesting that they're both right-handed.
I think it might just be a draw.
She doesn't look as comfortable as he does, from the positioning of her arm and her body.
I think he is from Russia, and she's from the U.S.
When the show is over, everyone goes home.
I like happy endings, and I don't see any happiness here.
