The great silent film actress Clara Bow in one of her first "talkies" is riding a galloping horse hooting and hollering when the horse is startled by a rattlesnake and throws her to the ground. She gets up, sees the snake, then gets really angry and whips it again and again with her horse whip like she's a, oh, I don't know, savage, maybe. Then she does the same thing to a poor guy who laughs at her snake whipping technique. Then she apologizes and asks him why she can't be like normal girls who aren't angry all the time. Obviously it's because she's savage. I can't tell what kind of snake she's whipping, but it does look like a real snake is being bothered in some way. Either she's really whipping it, or someone off camera is poking it.

Watch it on YouTube.
