Rank Hath Its Privileges

This 1906 short comedy from Alice Guy is fairly typical for this period of work by the world's first director: a pretty maid is out walking, and encounters a series of military men, starting with a private, who lose her to higher ranks, ending with the colonel. It's quick and the joke is decent.

Technically, Guy's mise-en-scene is standard for the period, with the story being told in a series of still takes with the camera in medium distance; this yields the pre-classical French camera-work which gives the audience the sense of watching the actual events with an amused, cynical eye (Feuillade was the master of this sort of shot in the Teens). The acting is very broad and it doesn't last long enough to pall.
