Extraordinary Illusions (1901)

*** (out of 4)

aka Dislocation mystérieuse

Neat little film from master director Meiles has him playing a clown who sits in a magic chair and various things begin to happen. The big key of magic in this film is that the clown stays in one spot while his arms, legs, head and eventually body begin to move to other places. There are two tables away from the chair and we get several gags of the arms having the move away from the body to get to these tables. The special effects must have really blown people's minds back when this was released because they remain quite good even after one-hundred years. There are some nice laughs as well but again, the main reason to watch this are the wonderful effects.
