Barely a Fragment
25 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is nothing here but a group of kids watching a Punch and Judy show. We don't know what went on before or beyond this brief scene. I guess because it was made by Georges Melies, it was worth keeping, even though nothing happens. There are many of these fragments and, unfortunately, much of his canon of work did not survive.
