March Melies Madness! – The Surrender of Tournavos [La prise de Tournavos] (1897)

A unique Méliès due to being a war scene re-enactment and containing no elements of fantasy or camera tricks. The Surrender of Tournavos (aka La prise de Tournavos).

    Continued compliments on your posting these wonderful films. This one was a real treat. Was it a trick in the film or did it look as if a small portion of the wall was on fire?

      Thank you again, and what an excellent question! I had assumed that to be a deterioration/damaging of the film, but now that you’ve drawn my attention to how much it looks like fire, that’s all I see! And since we’re dealing with Melies here, I’d say anything is possible. Very nice observation, thank you.
