March Melies Madness! – The Rajah’s Dream [Le rêve du radjah ou La forêt enchantée] (1900)

Georges Méliès presents The Rajah’s Dream (aka Le rêve du radjah ou La forêt enchantée aka Oh! What a Night; or, The Sultan’s Dream) and expands upon his previous one-reelers such as A Nightmare and A Terrible Night. One nice advancement of note is the use of stop-cut editing to replace the entire setting and not just a small number of items.
