If you're a regular reader of this blog, don't worry --
I haven't suddenly changed the format to M/m.
In true movie fashion, both Hollywood and (in this case) Foreign, this is actually a woman disguised as a boy for plot reasons that my mind refuses to remember. My mind also refuses to come up with the title of the film, although I'm sure some of my readers out there could supply these details. If I remember correctly, the lady in the movie does this to spy on her ex-husband and his new girlfriend (don't hold me to that, though.) When the "boy" throws a bit of a tantrum, she discovers that her ex-husband firmly believes that bad boys get spanked, much to her (and her bottom's) dismay.
The same thing happened to Doris Day in the movie, On Moonlight Bay...
Now, to be fair, Doris wasn't deliberately disguising herself as a boy--this was just the uniform she wore when she played baseball. And to her spanker's credit, he figured out after one swat that she was a girl. (Doris must have had a very soft bottom.)
The moral of this story (if it really has one) is: Ladies, don't dress up like boys. We like you much better when you wear that fancy, pretty, frilly, frou-frou kind of stuff.
It's less confusing for us. :-)
