This acrobatic dog performance straight from a Parisian music hall is led by woman and assisted by a man. The trained dogs performed somewhat boring but sophisticated tricks.

Another clear feature of Alice Guy's film is her emphasis of women's erotic attractiveness. That this was not a programmatic decision is shown by her other films where the roles are reversed.
