The Magician’s Cavern (1901)

aka L’antre des esprits
Article 4197 by Dave Sindelar
Date: 4-6-2013
Directed by Georges Melies
Cast unknown
Country: France
What it is: Magic trick

A magician does tricks with skeletons, dancing ladies and furniture.

I found yesterday’s trip into the world of Melies’s magic films to have points of interest that made it more interesting than usual; today’s is, I’m afraid, a much more ordinary example of that type of film. A magician appears, makes skeletons dance and turn into women, makes chairs frolic, etc. It’s cute enough, but if you’ve seen a lot of these, it’s nothing really special.
