And what They Get
17 March 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

The fairy queen delivers each her just rewards: the good shepherdess gets to see pretty women dance with garlands and to wed a handsome prince. The evil princess gets trapped by crocodiles and dragons and men in black leotards dance around her. And serve them right too! Unhappily, this late effort is almost all stage presentation. By now the rest of the industry was moving past Melies.

This is one of the many previously lost or infrequently seen Melies pictures that have been made available by Serge Bromberg, David Shepherd and a myriad of other hands in the newly issued DVD set GEORGES MELIES: FIRST WIZARD OF CINEMA. Required viewing for anyone interested in the history of movies ..... and a lot of fun.
