Un peu de feu s.v.p. (1904)

aka Every Man His Own Cigar Lighter

Sadly this film is only available in fragments and the total running time is just a matter of seconds. Still, it was nice for Flicker Alley to include this on their "Melies Encore" collection just so us die-hards would at least be able to see parts of it. I guess the only thing that can be said about the matter of seconds is that Melies appears under a thick beard and lights up a cigar. I must admit that I'm dying to know what the English title was supposed to mean but I guess we'll have to wait until the full film turns up.
