Storyline

A smoker falls asleep, and two mischievious fairies play with his pipe. He discovers this, and imprisons them in a cigar box. He removes a flower from the box, which contains a fairy smoking a cigarette. Next, he leaves briefly while his smoking paraphenalia clears itself from the table and the flower reassembles itself into a cigar. He lights the cigar, then breaks a bottle containing the fairy, who interacts with him in various ways reeling from his cigar smoke, building a bonfire that he extinguishes, etc. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Is this a film by J. Stuart Blackton or Georges Méliès?
7 September 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I watched this short silent film online tonight and it was identified as a film by the genius French director Georges Méliès. However, when I looked on IMDb, it said it was by J. Stuart Blackton! Obviously SOMEONE is wrong! While watching it, I sure thought it was a Méliès film because it was so creative and the camera tricks were so masterfully done. If it IS a Méliès film, then it's pretty typical of the amazing stuff he did. If it is NOT, then obviously by 1909 other directors starting imitating his style and techniques. Regardless WHO is responsible, it is a cute and interesting little film well worth seeing--particularly by Cinephiles like myself.
