Excursion to the Moon (1908)  Segundo de Chomon 7 mins

Excursion to the Moon is an example of how many of these newly developed skills combine with subjects of public interest to make an entertaining short film.  Stories of fantastic voyages, such as to the moon or under the sea, were popular at the turn of the century, and Georges Méliès had already been inspired by Jules Verne and H.G. Wells' novel "First Men in the Moon" to make Voyage to the Moon in 1902. 

The Cure (1917)  Charlie Chaplin 24 mins

In The Cure, Charlie plays a drunkard that is delivered to a health spring establishment, but he obviously has no intention of drying out because his trunk is full of liquor instead of clothes. Things really get out of control, however, when these bottles are thrown into the spring out of which the health resort's residents drink!

The usual format for Chaplin's short comedies involves a love triangle of some sort:  Edna Purviance is his regular co-star playing Charlie's romantic interest, while the tall and large Eric Campbell is either the rival suitor or the bully and baddie preventing Charlie from being happy with his girl.  In The Cure, he is the patient with gout who gets in Charlie's way – or vice versa!

Dog Shy (1926) Charlie Chase 23 mins

Dog Shy is a fine example of this successful team's output in the 1920s.  Afraid of dogs since early childhood, Charlie finds refuge from a dog in a telephone booth where the line is still open to a sobbing girl who is being forced to marry a nobleman she barely knows.   After this brief telephone encounter, Charlie's mission is to find the girl, and does so by becoming the family's new butler. 

Hilarious misunderstandings, such as with his orders to 'give The Duke a bath', lead to a midnight rendezvous involving burglars, the husband who wants to get rid of the family dog, and the eloping couple.

          Now You Tell One (1926) Charley Bowers 22 mins

Now You Tell One is one of the first re-discovered gems, and one of Bowers' best known films in our day.  The opening scenes are already fascinating, as a long row of elephants parade into a government building – one of the tall tales being told in a club of liars.  Another member, competing to be the year's best liar, tells of vanishing within a hat, but it is Bowers' apparent true story that wins the prize.

Having invented a magical grafting formula causing instant growth of anything attached to a branch, a delightfully absurd story begins to unravel, starting with an eggplant containing an egg and salt shaker!  Later, he even manages to clone living things from a branch using his special formula.  Watching Now You Tell One and the dozen or so other remaining films from this astonishing artist's unique body of work is an unforgettable journey through the fantastic world of the imagination.
