Calling all lady hellions! Meet your silent and early-sound era kindred spirits in this compilation of comedies that celebrates the overlooked damsels of destruction – rebellious double acts like Anita Garvin and Marion Byron or the Tilly Girls – who, over a century ago, were ripping up the female-behaviour rulebook on the big screen. After all, sometimes you and your bestie just need to throw ice-cream all over the place, cause havoc on a train with your pet monkey or take a fire-engine for a joyride, right?
