Fantasmagoria( Visual )

8 editions published in 1908 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. Squirmy chalk drawings are infused with the same anarchic spirit which inspired his earlier work as a caricaturist and art provocateur. Pointedly crude, the animation skewers a bourgeois lady at the theater within seconds. An auspicious beginning for one of cinema's first surrealists

1 edition published in 1908 and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The puppet's nightmare( Visual )

1 edition published in 1908 and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spanish Clair de Lune( Visual )

1 edition published in 1909 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A jealous scene at a cantina takes an unexpected turn when the spurned lover's suicide leap is intercepted by a UFO. Émile Cohl borrows liberally from Georges Méliès' classic A trip to the moon (1902), but his fantasy of celestial redemption is full of irreverent touches. During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema
Childish dreams( Visual )

1 edition published in 1910 and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohl's works explore two-dimensional animation, puppetry, etc. with some occational live action. A young girl falls asleep and her stuffed animal takes off into dreamland adventures. During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema
Modern education( Visual )

1 edition published in 1909 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. The great men of letters and military conquest pose for history as they would a screen test in Émile Cohl's irreverent short
The twelve labors of Hercules( Visual )

1 edition published in 1910 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cohl's corpulent Hercules takes on the Nemean lion, Lernean hydra, the hind of Ceryneia, the Erymanthean Boar, the Augean Stables, the Stymphalian Birds, the Cretan Bull, the horses of Diomedes, the belt of Hippolyte, Geryon's cattle, the apples of the Hesperides, and finally Cerberus, the three-headed dog. During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema
The little soldier who became a god( Visual )

1 edition published in 1908 and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. The Little Soldier Who Became a God is one of the most surreal of Cohl's live action/stop motion hybrids. This film features actors performing in blackface. Fandor does not condone racist stereotyping, but blackface is nonetheless a significant aspect of American history in general and film history specifically. Early cinema was deeply rooted in vaudeville, where blackface was a popular staple
The magic hoop( Visual )

1 edition published in 1908 and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. Cohl mixes live-action and stop-motion animation in this charming evocation of the power of imagination. A magician shapes his cane into a hoop with strange properties for a young girl. Costume changes and city promenades give way towards greater abstraction as the film becomes absorbed by what goes on inside the ring
Comic mutations( Visual )

1 edition published in 1909 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. Animation in an experimental vein with landladies and fishermen shot through with the impertinent spirit of caricature
Transfigurations( Visual )

1 edition published in 1909 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. A showman invites patrons to step up to his Kinetoscope-style magic box and glimpse the answers to their most burning questions. Cohl's irreverent animation takes over from here, painting less than flattering portraits of futures in marriage and business. The only satisfied customer is the one who asks the right question
The four little tailors( Visual )

1 edition published in 1910 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How best to decide among the candidates? During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema
The enchanted spectacles( Visual )

1 edition published in 1909 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its second decade of existence, the Gaumont Film Company continued to prove itself an indomitable force in cultivating and advancing the fledgling art of cinema. A parlor full of bon vivants pass around an enchanted pair of spectacles that 'reveal the personality and pleasures of the one who wears them.' As always in Émile Cohl's films, there is a thin line separating everyday reality from fantastic apparitions. The glasses reveal free associated stop-motion images that picture human personality as an eccentric assortment of illustrated bric-a-brac. Cohl was a caricaturist and surrealist upstart before he became a filmmaker and one sees the marks of those former occupations in this beguiling short
En route( Visual )

1 edition published in 1910 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
