Blast From The Past: The Mermaid (dir by Georges Méliès)


For today’s blast from the past, we have another dream film from Georges Méliès.  In this film, a man (played by the director) appears to dream of a mermaid.  This film is from 1904 and, 118 years later, it’s still a charmingly surreal vignette.  Georges Méliès reveals himself to be not only a dreamer but a pioneer of the type of special effects that we today take for granted.
