George Melies Encore: 26 Additional Rare and Original Films by the First Wizard of Cinema (1896-1911)

Director: Georges Méliès, Georges Melies
    see all cast/crew...
Studio: Flicker Alley
Running Time: 120 min.
Subtitles: English

Georges Méliès built the world's first movie studio in 1896 and from it cascaded many fantastic films, as featured on Flicker Alley's monumental thirteen-hour, five-DVD box, Georges Méliès, First Wizard of the Cinema. Since it was published, an additional 26 films produced by Méliès between 1896 and 1911 have been found and made available for this single-disc, supplemental collection. They further support that Méliès was the most accomplished filmmaker in the world during the first years of cinema.

The films collected here are presented as in the earlier set, in chronological order with excellent new music. Although the print quality is variable, most look very nice; five boast beautiful, original hand-coloring, while another five have original English narrations written by Méliès. Two are fragments, as the complete films are lost. As a bonus, this collection also includes two films in the Méliès style by Segundo de Chomon, which for many years were misidentified as Georges Méliès' own work.

Titles included are:

Post No Bills
The Haunted Castle
An Hallucinated Alchemist
On The Roof
The Last Cartridges
Sea Fighting In Greece
Off to Bloomingdale Asylum
