More Mèliés Tricks

Back from dealing with Hurricane Michael yesterday, and wanted to share a little Mèliés flummery to express my sense of relief! This dates from 1903 and shows his prowess at careful film editing at it's best.

  1. I hope your home didn’t suffer ill effects from Hurricane Michael! Thanks for the clever Melies clip! About 2-3 years ago, I saw a Melies film program hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It drew a good-sized crowd & it was fun to see on a big screen.
    This short is clever, & his mastery at editing is evident here.
