A Mix-Up in the Gallery
20 March 2010 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Mix-Up In The Gallery, A (1906)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Une Chute de cinq étages

Quick two-and-a-half minute short has Georges Melies playing a photographer who is trying to get the perfect shot of a couple who enter his shop. Soon a dimwitted assistant causes a major accident, which causes the camera to go out a window where the real trouble starts. Once again we're dealt a fairly interesting short from the legendary director. Newbies won't want to check this one out first as Melies has so much better work out there but fans of his will want to see it at least once. The entire film really centers on the two jokes and for the most part both of them work well enough to get you to at least smile. What happens to the camera once it's outside the window is the main highlight here.
