aka An Arabian Magician

Directed by Segundo de Chomon
Cast unknown
Country: France
What it is: Standard trick film

An Arabian magician makes women appear and disappear.

What we have here is your typical Melies-style trick film in which a magician performs the usual cinematic tricks. There’s not much to this one, though the hand-drawn coloring adds a touch of pizzazz, and a few of the tricks are done quite smoothly. Otherwise, this is pretty standard issue.
