Worth Seeing, & Differs Somewhat From the Edison Version
8 July 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This 1896 version of "Annabelle Serpentine Dance" is the remake that W.K.L. Dickson modeled after the Edison feature, after Dickson had moved to the new American Mutoscope studio. The 1895 Edison version is the better of the two, but like most of the numerous movies of Annabelle (Whitford) Moore's dance routines, this one is worth seeing, and there are a few small differences between it and the Edison movie.

The basic routine is pretty much the same as in the original, but in this one Annabelle twirls around more frequently, rather than mainly maneuvering her long skirts. From the floor pattern, you can also tell that this one was not produced in Edison's 'Black Maria' studio.

The most significant difference, though, is that the Edison version had very nicely done hand-tinted color, and added to Annabelle's dancing, it produced a pleasing and almost hypnotic effect. This one is filmed completely in black-and-white. So it's not quite as eye- catching as the earlier version, but it's still worth a look.
