Bout de Zan Steals an Elephant
10 August 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Bout-de-Zan vole un elephant (1913)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A circus is in town so Bout-de-Zan (Rene Poyen) decides to sneak off and see the elephant while everyone else is sleeping. Once there he decides the best thing to do would be to steal it and the two then set off for many misadventures. Apparently Feuillade made nearly fifty of these Bout-de-Zan shorts with each one having the young kid getting into different situations. I must admit that I never really laughed out loud at any point of this film but I still had a pleasant time thanks in large part to the performance by Poyen. I found him to be incredibly charming and full of energy that really jumped off the screen. The elephant too was cute in its own way and it's clear the boy was having a great time with this giant beast. The comedy ranges from them stealing apples to the elephant knocking out a cop but the funniest bit, and the only part I really laughed at, was when the elephant scares off a fake blind man.
