A Florida Enchantment


A Florida Enchantment is an American movie that was released in the year 1914. The movie was directed by Sydney Drew and starred Sydney Drew, Edith Storey


In the film, Lillian Travers, a wealthy Northern woman about to be married, takes a magical seed which transforms its user into the opposite gender. Lillian’s transformation into Lawrence Talbot has also sometimes been read as a transformation into a butch lesbian. This reading is bolstered by the later transformation of Lillian’s fiancĂ© into what could be an effemininate gay man. However, as Lillian and her fiancĂ© are shown attracted both to each other and to the same sex (albeit at different times), the film has also been considered to have the first documented appearance of bisexual characters in an American motion picture.[1]
