Description
Beginning title lacking; English language title from American Film Institute online catalog. DLC Originally released in France by Pathé frères in 1906. A basket of flowers appears and moves by itself to the middle of a decorative arch. From the basket, a woman magician appears. From a cylinder, the magician conjures a series of tiny dancers and acrobats who perform on a table top, and in the palm of her hand. She puts dancers back into the cylinder, then stirs and shakes the contents, and out pops another dancer. She puts them back into the cylinder, then arranges six small cups in a line along the table top. She waves her wand and six tiny dancers appear and dance on a board placed across the tops of the cups. Then, one by one she makes all her props disappear and produces a basket of flowers, which she enlarges and scatters about the stage. The flowers turn into life-sized dancers. A man dressed in a tutu comes forward and takes a bow with the magician. Pathé no. 1185. MAVIS 64253; Liliputian dance. DLC On one film reel/videocassette with five other films. Preceded by La poule phénomène, A touching pleading, [Story of Christ]. Followed by The enchanted glasses, and The golden beetle. DLC Digital files viewed.
