Storyline

John is one of a group of sightseers who loves the bottle a little too much. Too drunk to follow the party, the reeling drunkard remains on a ruin site where he starts having hallucinations. Some kind of high priest conjures up before his eyes visions of beautiful living statues in antique women's clothing as well as platefuls of appetizing victuals. But whenever poor John tries to embrace one of the goddesses or eat the food, everything disappears. In the end, when John thinks he has finally fallen into the arms of one of the sirens, he finds himself in those of a fat lady who had lain down near him to take a rest. Written by Guy Bellinger

The Consummate Drunk
20 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A group of people are taking a tour of some rooms. One of them is a knock-out drunk who takes out a bottle and goes into gyrations. With him is a large woman who decides to lie down and take a nap. The tour has proceeded, leaving these two behind. As it turns out, some sort of figure from the past come out and all hell breaks loose. The drunk can only think of one thing. Soon, Melies introduces to his usual stable of women. They are figure in a fountains and, naturally, come to life to the drunk''s delight. Nothing to recommend this one, in my opinion.
