I'm really not sure how long this Melies film was suppose to last but we get about 90-seconds worth of it on the wonderful Flicker Alley set. The storyline is pretty simple as a magician (played by Melies) turns a dice into a much larger one and then does a few more tricks to it to make it spin around on its own. That's pretty much the only thing we get here but I found the special effects to hold up quite well with the jump cuts not being nearly as noticeable as in many of his films.
