A Kiss in a Taxi

Original movie poster

A Kiss in a Taxi was a light-hearted farce filled with slapstick humor, romantic capers and assorted mischief. Daniels played the role of Ginette, a waitress working in a café in the Montmarte neighborhood of Paris, who spent her days warding off the advances of her many admirers. Ginette’s determination to thwart her suitors resulted in numerous antics, including a fiancé felled by a wayward punch and a taxi crash caused by one wooer’s strenuous efforts to gain a kiss at high speed. Described as a “frothy light affair” by the Charlotte Observer, A Kiss in a Taxi delighted the Carolina Theatre’s opening-night audience with its abundance of “risqué and unusual situations.”
