March Melies Madness! - Going to Bed Under Difficulties [Le déshabillage impossible] (1900)
Familiar territory for Méliès, but executed to perfection. We again see our protagonist "Going to Bed Under Difficulties", as indicated by the title, though this film also introduces us to a new Méliès trick: The Infinite Clothing. In fact, the original French title, Le déshabillage impossible, literally translates to "Impossible Undressing".
