Dwarf and the Giant, The (1901)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Nain et géant

Somewhat entertaining film has Melies once again playing a magician and this time he comes out on stage and morphs himself into a double. Once he's doubled, he makes on of them shrink to a dwarf while the other grows to a giant. That's pretty much all that happens in this film as it runs just under a minute so I guess you could say that time didn't allow for anything else to happen. What's here is pretty entertaining but it's nothing strong enough to rank this as one of the director's best films. The special effects are good though.
