'The Man with the Rubber Head' (1901)

‘The Man with the Rubber Head’ (1901)

“In conjuring you work under the attentive gaze of the public, who never fail to spot a suspicious movement. You are alone, their eyes never leave you. Failure would not be tolerated… While in cinema… you can do your confecting quietly, far from those profane gazes, and you can do things thirty-six times necessary until they are right. This allows you to travel further in the domain of the marvelous.” -Georges Méliès
