Best Fantasy Movies of 1902
The Extraordinary Waiter
A Swiss tourist knocks the head off a negro waiter. (IMDb)
Jack and the Beanstalk
Porter's sequential continuity editing links several shots to form a narrative of the famous fairy tale story of Jack and his magic beanstalk. Borrowing on cinematographic methods reminiscent of 'Georges Melies' , Porter uses animation, double exposure, and trick photography to illustrate the fairy's apparitions, Jack's dream, and the fast growing beanstalk.
