The Merry Skeleton

The Lumière Brothers (1897)

The first and and the last stop-motion movie by Lumière Brothers.
A skeleton dances joyously, often collapsing into a heap of bones and quickly putting itself back together.


  1. I don’t mind if CGI is used as…uh scenery…or to dress up something but not as the main thing.

  2. No and CGI sometimes doesn’t look right…not like the real thing…that would be harder to do but a big payoff

  3. What an exciting time that must have been for movie makers of all kinds. The sky was the limit…they even played with sound also…some people did.

  4. This impresses me more than any thing modern because of what they had to work with…and it’s still cool.
