Right in front of our very eyes, two attractive and feminine women metamorphose into two professional wrestlers, one heavyweight and one lightweight competitor, who begin a no-holds-barred wrestling match. With a little bit of help from fine dummies, a sprinkle of cinematic magic and some trick photography, the formidable opponents will go to great lengths to win this contest.Written by
Most of the time when I view these pioneering efforts, I comment on how much one could do with so little. The plots are thin, but after all, it's 1900. This little wrestling bit is one of the best I've seen and I actually giggled as I watched it. It is especially engaging when the skinny guy (Melies himself) goes against the much bigger man. What transpires is ingenious, with some masterful animation. I especially enjoyed when the big guy flattens Melies and peels him off the floor. Great fun.
