Wordless Wednesday-Cupid's Pranks
Usually I reserve these posts for Silent Film Sunday but as I did a different post last weekend here is a very early silent film by J. Searle Dawley, 1908, the film Cupid's Pranks. In the ten minute film Cupid visits a ballroom and tries to bring a couple together. I particularly love the beginning which shows cupid forging his arrows. This is a lovely early example of fantasy film making and like all of these films offers a beautiful glimpse into a time gone by.
