Two men are playing a friendly game of cards, while a third man sits at the same table and watches them. As the game proceeds, a waiter brings a tray with a bottle and some glasses. The spectator pours the drinks, while the waiter turns his attention to the game, which he finds quite entertaining. Written by
During 1895, Louis Lumiere made a number of home movies starring his family and friends. In this film, Louis' father Antoine is playing a game of cards with a family friend, Felicien Trewey (a vaudeville performer). Another unidentified man is involved in the game as a waiter serves drinks and seems grotesquely intrusive. That's about it for this film. It can be noted that Trewey acted in: "The Transformation of Hats"(1895) where he does a comedy sketch; and "The Photograph"(1895)- where he appears with Lois' brother Auguste. These films were probably made at the same time as "Partie d'ecarte". Trewey also helped establish a Lumiere Theatre in Lyon during 1896 and set up a presentation of the Cinematograph at the Royal Polytechnic Institute in London during February 1896.
