Catch as Catch Can

Considered lost for many years, this early de Chomon film turned up in the Catalonian film archives and was restored. Good for us fans of early cinema.

In structure it was a common enough type of film: a chase slapstick. In this case, it's about a farmer who puts up a notice he is looking for a wife, and is soon fleeing from a dozen women. It is worth noting that Edison released 'How a French Nobleman Got a Wife Through the 'New York Herald' Personal Columns' in September of 1904 and this film was first screened in December of 1904. Perhaps de Chomon saw Porter's film and transferred the venue to Spain or perhaps they both derive from a common antecedent.

In any case, this is a decent enough film for the period, with several camera placements -- all of which are unmoving -- and a decent pay off shot. It's worth the while of anyone interested in the history of film, but the two films are much of a muchness.
