What it is: Magic trick short

A magician performs magic tricks, some of which involve soap bubbles.

Yes, it’s another Melies magic trick short, but at least I’ve had a bit of a break from them lately, so I’m a little less tired of them. The best thing about this one is that the use of smoke and soap bubbles in the tricks give the magic a slightly different texture than some of the other shorts of this type; I like the scene where he blows faces from the soap bubbles in particular. Beyond that, it’s a fairly typical Melies magic trick short.
