Storyline

The entire story of Christmastide is here depicted. The scene opens in a large boudoir of an apparently wealthy man's home. His children, assisted by their governess, are about to retire. Before lying down they hang up their stockings on the edge of the bed. The picture changes and night appears. We see the housetops of the town and angels are flying about depositing packages in each of the chimneys. Santa Claus is also busy and furnishes our little friends with numerous presents. Again a change in the picture and we see the corridor of the old village church. The sexton, an old grey haired man, stands by, while a number of lusty boys pull the rope attached to the great bell in the belfry. The bell tolling in the steeple bursts into view, after which the interior of the church is seen with the full choir accompanied by the organist and choir boys singing the Christmas hymn. Another change and the boudoir is again before us and the children are looking over their presents while their ... Written by Edison Catalog

Christmas Dream, The (1900)

** (out of 4)

aka Reve de Noel

Interesting film from director Meiles shows the dream of two children on Christmas Night. This film runs just over three minutes and I can't say that I really enjoyed it but there were several interesting things in it. The best scene of the movie is the one at night where angels walk on the house roof's in order to protect the people. We get several other Christmas themed stuff including a large card and some people singing in the street but none of it kept me too entertained. The most interesting aspect for me was seeing various Christmas ordaments that were used at the time. Some of the toys the kids got for Christmas were also interesting to see.
