A unique and important Filmmaker
This is one of over 200 magical works by this highly inventive and original artist. De Chomon was not a plagiarist of the great Melies, he was influenced by that original creator of cinema and went into many new directions with his films. Among his talents was a greater sophistication in the situations and narrative, the use of outdoor locations, and more freedom with his camera.
