Storyline

According to the original Star Film Catalogue description, this mostly-lost short film was about an English millionaire who, while vacationing in France, wishes to light a smoke while sightseeing. However, as all he can find is a single match which won't light, he asks several other passers-by to oblige him, but is turned down. Suddenly, he has a brilliant plan: he'll create a gentleman who will oblige. With this, he magically divides himself into two different millionaires, both of them completely identical. One of these two personages asks the other of a match; he happily obliges, and the two men then merge back into one person. Written by Tornado_Sam

It's not really a film so how can one credit it with more than a recognition that it exists. Melies simply draws on a stogie and releases smoke into the air. It's like celebrity's garbage being picked up and held in great esteem. I'm only reporting seeing this because it seems to be included in his works. It even has a title.
