Best Fantasy Movies of 1901
The Waif and the Wizard
The Waif and the Wizard features the same young man who appeared in Undressing Extraordinary (and who might be early filmmaker Walter Booth). It's another early example of a two-shot film along the lines of Paul's earlier film Come Along Do!. The young man plays a magician who, after completing his act, agrees to go home with the young boy from the audience who helped him perform his tricks. At the boy's home he finds a sick sister and a worried mother being threatened with eviction by her landlord.
The Magician's Cavern
A very enthusiastic magician performs several tricks.
The Haunted Curiosity Shop
An old proprietor is startled and haunted by the strange happenings inside his curiosity shop.
Scrooge; or Marley's Ghost
A scene from Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol.
