Alice Guy, 1st Female Filmmaker – Disappearing Act [Scène d’escamotage] (1898)

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and Alice Guy-Blaché’s Disappearing Act (aka Scène d’escamotage) is an obvious imitation of the early films of Georges Méliès, such as The Vanishing Lady. Also note that we see the same backdrop used in At the Hypnotist’s.
