Slapstick Summer Series! – The Fat and Lean Wrestling Match (1900), Wrestling w/ Melies

This film, like yesterday’s, is also not considered to be the 1st slapstick movie…but in this case, I’m not exactly sure why. Perhaps this is due to the physical comedy occurring only in an unexpected (and extreme) manner, but not not in an unexpected setting? I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on the matter.
