Bachelor's Paradise, The (1901)

** (out of 4)

aka Chez la sorcière

Lower Meiles film has him playing a man (the bachelor?) who goes a visits a witch but soon she is playing tricks on him. This film doesn't really contain any of the magic that we've come to expect from the great director. The biggest trick done in the movie is when the witch turns the man into some sort of animal but this brings no laughs and the trick itself isn't anything to get worked up over. The movie runs just over a couple minutes and for the most part it's pretty standard from start to finish.
