March Melies Madness! – The Astronomer’s Dream [La lune à un mètre] (1898)

In The Astronomer’s Dream (aka La lune à un mètre aka The Moon at One Meter), Georges Méliès explores the imagination and fantasies of a scientist viewing the moon. This is a pre-cursor to the more accomplished A Trip to the Moon (Le voyage dans la lune).

    I thought for a moment, the lady reclining on the crescent moon resembled an image from an Aubrey Beardsley illustration. Perhaps an influence?

    Interesting! Could very well be. I also just noticed that Beardsley died the same year this film was made.
