Inn Where No Man Rests, The (1903)

*** (out of 4)

aka L'Auberge du bon Repos

George Melies, in a drunken state, walks into a room, which eventually begins to come to life with various magical tricks. This film here runs five minutes and it starts off rather slowly but once the room comes to life it becomes a lot of fun. Once again, the moon and the Devil play parts in the movie but we've also got a really weird scene at the start when Melies tries to force himself on a woman. We've seen this type of film before from the director but he still manages to make this entertaining due in large part to some very good special effects including his boots taking off walking, his bed jumping around and the highlight is the scene where his nightshirt gets eaten by a picture on the wall.
