Storyline

In a room filled with jugglers' properties of enormous size a prestidigitateur dressed in eccentric costume enters with his assistant. The servant, believing that he would be comfortable in an armchair, sits down in it, but finds that it conceals a bucket of water, in which he falls. The juggler brings a large empty cask and puts it upon a table and fills it up with several pails of water. He leaps into the cask to take a bath, but he is bitten and hastily gets out. The water has disappeared, and in turning the cask upside down, some roosters and chickens come out of it very much alive. He stands the cask up again and shows with a pail that it is filled with water just as at first. Suddenly there comes out of the cask a pretty young girl, whom the juggler places in a chair upon the table. When he has wrapped her up in a veil he aims at her an enormous pistol, fires it, and the flash resembles that of a large cannon. The veil falls, disclosing the assistant, and at the same time the ... Written by Méliès Catalog

Decent Melies

Comical Conjuring (1903)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Jack et Jim

More magic tricks from French filmmakers Melies has him once again playing a magician. Various tricks are performed on stage including a scene where buckets are filled with water only to have issues arrive. The best scene in the movie is when one man goes to jump into the barrel of water to take a bath only to quickly jump out due to something biting him. It turns out the water had turned into chickens. This is a fairly interesting film from the director but I wouldn't call it one of the best of his career as it's pretty middle ground for anyone familiar with his work. There are some nice tricks but overall there's really nothing here that we haven't already seen.
