8 February 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

As a guard marches at his post about 125 kilometers outside of Paris, some billposters get into a fight over who gets to cover the forbidden wall with posters.

This is one of the earliest of Melies' films, listed as #15 in his catalogue and, if he had thought of any of his camera tricks, he didn't use them here. The camera sits, watching events and while this might have been an amusing bit for Melies' show at the Theatre Robert-Houdin, it isn't terribly interesting to the modern eye -- except it is an early Melies, which makes it interesting to enthusiasts like me, newly rediscovered in the past couple of years.
