The Original Music Videos of Alice Guy [part 1] – The Anatomy of a Draftee (1905)

Polin performs The Anatomy of a Draftee (L’Anatomie du Conscrit, by E. Rimbault and E. Spencer) in this phonoscene by Alice Guy. This early form of music video was created using a chronophone recording of Polin, who was then filmed “lip singing”. Guy would film phonoscenes of all three major Belle Époque celebrities in France: Polin, Félix Mayol, and Dranem.
