What it is: Another Melies dream short
A manic composer has a dream in which musicians and dancers appear.
It’s another Melies dream short, and taken on its own merits, it’s not particularly special; he’d already done several similar shorts. However, if you do catch this one, I highly recommend you go for the one with the Donald Sosin score; not only does his music fit the action perfectly, but it adds a comic dimension and a flavor that shows just what a difference a decent score can make.
