The Living Playing Cards 1904


Georges Méliès | Early Cinema , Comedy , Fantasy

A bearded magician holds up a large playing card and makes it larger. He tears up a card of a queen, burns the torn bits, and a life-size Queen of Hearts card appears; then, it becomes alive. The magician puts her back into the card. The same thing happens with the King of Clubs: the card becomes alive. The king removes his costume, and there's something very familiar about him.

Cast: Georges Méliès.
