The Magic Dice (Melies ) Fragment
20 March 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Magic Dice, The (1905)

Fragment only

aka Le Phénix ou le coffret de cristal

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.
