Addition And Substraction (1900)

*** (out of 4)

aka Tom Whiskey ou I'illusionniste toque

Hilarious film from Melies has him playing a magician who morphs people into others. There are many highlights here including one scene where he takes three skiny women and combines them into one large woman. Another funny sequence is when the large woman is smashed down into a little boy. The magic tricks here are all done very well and they are highly well done. The print on this film is in pretty rough shape but it's better than being lost. I think this would be a good film to show someone not familiar with the director because it contains all his classic moves.
