March Melies Madness! – Adventures of William Tell [Guillaume Tell et le clown] (1898)

A humorous re-telling of the William Tell legend, in which a dummy is built for the purpose of enacting the William Tell arrow shot, but the dummy comes to life via the use of a stop-cut replacement trick often used by Méliès.
