Storyline

An ancient tower, in which is seated the magician, occupies the centre of the stage. On either side of the tower is a statue. The magician waves his hands and the tower and both statues disappear. He then removes his coat and seats himself upon a chair. On one side of the chair, two figures, each an exact counterpart of himself, appear. On the other side a third figure, also an exact counterpart of himself, appears. The figures then run up the wall, one of them balancing itself upon the head of the magician, and the others stand on their heads in the palms of his hands. The figures are then turned into flags, which the magician waves and throws aside as he makes his exit. Written by Edison Catalog

Impossible Balancing Feat, The (1902)

*** (out of 4)

aka L'Equilibre impossible

Geoges Melies walks out on stage where he sits in a chair and we watch three other Melies come out and do a balancing act on his head. This film runs just over a minute and while it starts off a tad bit slow it picks up and becomes highly entertaining once the magic trick starts. The special effects hold up very well and it's not very easy to see how the trick is being done. The sets at the opening are also quite beautiful and one wishes the director left this while the magic was going on.
