In some sections of the United States in 1908, it was illegal to display fight films. Some producers circumvented these laws by offering "reproductions" of fights that had already taken place. One of these films was a re-staging of a 1907 bout, spotlighting a pair of British pugilists named Burns and Palmer. The credibility of the film was dampened somewhat when, on cue, Palmer fell to the canvas before the fatal blow had been struck. Reproduction of Burns-Palmer Fight was originally shown as an extra added attraction with a live presentation of Mrs. Fiske's stage play Vanity Fair.
