Storyline

About a half dozen passengers, a clergyman, a captain and boson are aboard a sea tossed vessel. As it lurches several of the passengers are sea-sick and throwing up into bowls held by other passengers. Meanwhile a male passenger downs a drink. When the seas get even rougher the most of the passengers head below. The clergyman, however, is knocked off his feet and falls through a hatchway. As he tries to get back on deck the tossing becomes even more turbulent causing most to lose their footing. All go below except for the captain who has stayed at his post throughout this whole event.

One Joke.... plus one inside
13 March 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

It's a rough sea when crossing the Channel and the half dozen people abovedecks are having a tough time keeping their equilibrium..... except for the Englishman, who is busy enjoying his tea.

The inside joke is the earliest appearance I have seen of the movie trademark: if you've seen early Griffith films -- from about 1908 -- they plastered the Biograph AB everywhere. Since you had a tough time enforcing any sort of film copyright -- although you could print out the film on paper and submit it as a book to the library of Congress, whence comes a lot of recent restorations -- you plastered your trademark everywhere you could. Here the boat is labeled "Robert Houdin Star Line". Melies operated out of the Theatre Robert-Houdin.

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.
