Very cool
7 February 2006 | by (Pensacola, Florida : United States) – See all my reviews

I know in today's world, this would be seen as very politically incorrect, but at the time, I think they were trying to make a humorous short using special effects.

It's really cool and looks so good, that many people don't believe that it's from 1907. They think it's a modern piece that has been edited to look old.

It is a very clever way make the viewer think that they are seeing amazing tricks. Even in today's technological world, this technique is still used in some cases as an effect. Very impressive.

It's a must see.
