The Magic of Early Cinema – The Skeleton of Joy (1897)


In our 3rd installment of our ‘Magic of early cinema’ series, we take a look at ‘The Skeleton of Joy’, an 1897 film by the Lumière brothers. Sure, we may be used to seeing ghouls and monsters in our movies nowadays, but just imagine how it must have been to be an audience member at the end of the 19th century!

‘The Skeleton of Joy’ (originally titled ‘Le Squelette Joyeux) is a fascinating short film by the Lumière brothers. A skeleton dances, falls apart and reattaches itself again!
