March Melies Madness! – The Vanishing Lady [Escamotage d’une Dame au Théâtre Robert Houdin] (1896)

Georges Méliès stops the camera to create The Vanishing Lady (aka Escamotage d’une Dame au Théâtre Robert Houdin, literally The Conjuring of a Woman at the House of Robert Houdin). This was the 70th film by Georges Melies.

    Another great post. With what should be renewed interest in Melies’ films due to “Hugo”, (as if an exterior reason were necessary) I would expect these postings to be hugely popular. Thanks for your invaluable work in bringing his works to light on this venue.

      Much appreciated! It’s truly my pleasure. This is something I’d wanted to do for quite awhile, and as you mentioned, Hugo has created the opportunity for a higher recognition, appreciation, and overall awareness of his truly amazing work. Thanks again, your shared excitement brings a welcome vitality.
