I remember reading a passage in grad school about the female audience 
response to _The Corbett-Fitzsimmons Fight_.  When I discovered that 
this title led to a redlink on Wikipedia, I started working on one went 
looking through the two books I where I thought I might have read this 
(Jancovich's _The Place of the Audience_ and Tsivian's _Early Cinema in 
Russia_, but I didn't find it.  I remember the author used this to 
launch into an essay about women audiences enjoying seeing Rudolph 
Valentino topless and getting beaten.

Can anyone remind me what book this is?

Thnak you,
