Silent Film Sunday-Georges Melies Cindarella

Today's silent film is the 1899 version of Cinderella directed by Georges Melies.  The film highlights Melies superb imagery and early use of special effects.  It is one of the first films to use multiple sets and scenes to aid in telling a narrative story.   The film was very popular with viewers and was shown at fair ground cinemas and music halls in Europe and America.
