Naughty Anthony

   David Belasco wrote and produced this comedy, which opened on 8 January 1900 for 90 performances at the Herald Square Theatre starring Blanche Bates. Its healthy run was due, in part, to the addition of Madame Butterfly as an afterpiece, but this innocuous farce about the effect of Parisian silk stockings on hoydenish Cora, played by Bates, was titillating to Victorian audiences. The "stocking scene," in which Cora demonstrates the newly fashionable legwear, was made into a short motion picture by American Mutoscope in 1900 with Bates recreating her role.
