Who are you calling 'dummy'?
3 December 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A very simple gag film: a young lady substitutes herself for a dummy in order to play a practical joke on an artist. This one-minute film could have been made by almost anyone at this point of time -- and it was made, in varying forms, by several people.

Nonetheless, and not simply because it was done by Georges Méliès, it does have a couple of interesting points. One is the later standard silent film trope that because the film is silent, the world inside the frame is likewise silent. The young woman manages to move the mannequin, which is as large as she is and substitute herself in its place without making any noise to alert the object of her practical joke.
