TW: Kidnapping

Worth Watching? Yes

Bechdel Test? Probably a pass, but hard to tell with silent films

Race Bechdel Test? Fail

Major LGBT Tropes: Crossdresser

Synopsis (from imdb): Skypirate Filibus commits robberies from her airship, while a dedicated detective attempts to put a stop to it.

My Thoughts: Do you like wacky, genderqueer sky pirates who outsmart the fellas, seduce the ladies, and do diamond heists for the fun of it...in 1915? If so, this is the movie for you! In spite of the fact that this film was not well preserved, I found it to be positively delightful. I didn't know genderqueer skypirates were a thing, but now they are my thing.
