The Broken Violin (1908)

aka Lully ou le violon brisé

If a violin was actually broken here we don't get to see it. Sadly this is one of many Georges Melies films that are only available in a fragment. Hopefully one day a complete print will turn up but until then at least we have this. The film starts off in some sort of bakery as the boss starts giving orders and then a bit later we see a young man pull out a violin he has been hiding and start to play it. The film then flashes to another location but this is where it cuts off so I'm not certain where the story went from here. Again, if you're a die-hard Melies fan going through every film on the Flicker Alley box set then you'll want to watch this one but everyone else will be OK skipping it. What's here really didn't look all that special but it's hard to judge the film since the second half is missing.
