(Georges Méliès, France 1901-09, 65 min.)
Silent Tuesdays. As a prelude to our Nov. 17 Trip to the Moon event, we present miniature masterpieces of mystery, mirth, and mayhem achieved with fabulous sets, innovative trick photography, and a sense of brio that was Méliès’ specialty. We’ll show a number of his best works, some of which were rediscovered by the Eastman House in extraordinary circumstances. Prepare for the problems of The Troublesome Cheeses, the latest trends in Up-To-Date Surgery, achieving The Impossible Voyage, and more!
