Stage Act
9 September 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A beautiful damsel comes onto stage and makes pigeons appear; then she transforms into a chimera, half woman, half fancy pigeon.

Segundo de Chomon, the film's director, was Pathe's answer to Georges Melies. This looks like a stage magic act, but there are clear signs that the first half is managed by running the film backwards: in the original shoot, she lifts the pigeons from their roosts and sets them flying offstage. The second half is more of a straight stage illusion. The whole thing is aided by some beautiful color stencil work that still survives in the copy I looked at.

Although this short lacks the vivacity of Melies' movies, it makes it up in its elaboration.
