It's especially nice to have full films, rather than clips. I also find it very interesting to see what was considered humorous at the time. In the 1905 film, "The Whole Dam Family, and the Dam Dog", for example, there is minimal action, the humor coming from wordplay in the titles which may seem juvenile today, but at the same time show great playfulness. This is just one of the many pleasures to be found on this incredible disc.
Next, move on to Volume 2, for an in-depth look at the films of Melies!
