List of Georges Méliès Films: Part 3, 1907-1913

Master conjurer of the stage... extravagant wizard of fantastic filmmaking... Georges Méliès always gave his ventures his absolute best and the audience was always well rewarded. When Méliès began shooting films in 1896 he wasted little time in constructing the first film studio in Europe and establishing the first exclusive movie production firm -- the Star Film Company. By 1897, entrepreneur Méliès already had imitators -- such as The Haunted Castle, directed by magician George Albert Smith -- but none captured the quality of work that Méliès produced and labored over with intensity and enjoyment. Originally, his films were projected and shown at The Théâtre Robert-Houdin, but found further success at fairgrounds to which the films were sold to and showcased. Unfortunately, Méliès discovered that his beloved movies were being pirated and sold abroad by unscrupulous distributors like the Edison Company. As a deterrent, Star Films branched out in 1903 to Barcelona, Berlin, London, and even New York where Méliès' brother Gaston supervised distribution, marketing, and copyrights. Méliès' sale prices were much steeper than his competitors because he felt his films were better produced and more care was put into making them. One of the services he provided was the option to purchase, at an even higher price, versions of his films that he would painstakingly hand-color himself. By 1905 permanent movie theaters called Nickelodeons began to replace film exhibitions at fairs and the movies of Georges Méliès were especially in high demand. Because of the increasing popularity of Nickelodeons and the ever expanding film market, Méliès had a second and larger studio built -- Studio B. But such was only the beginning of bad financial investments that would inevitably lead Méliès into financial ruin. Although Méliès ultimately fell into obscurity, 1929 proved he was not completely erased from the minds of those who cherished his films. That same year honored Méliès in an article published by La Revue du Cinema and, in celebration of the great filmmaker's work, several of his films were screened at a gala in Paris. More than a century later, the films of Georges Méliès continue to reach out to new generations of fans as movies once thought lost are resurfacing at an impressive rate and are being shared with the adoring public. Listed below are his films from his final years, 1907-1913.

List of Georges Méliès Films: Part 2, 1901-1906

Before the Wizard of Cinema astounded audiences with inventive trick effects in his films and dazzled spectators with magical moving pictures in the spectacle realm of science fiction, fantasy, and the macabre, Georges Méliès was an enthusiastic and highly entertaining stage magician. Greatly influenced by famous illusionists John Nevil Maskelyne, David Devant, and Joseph Buatier de Kolta, Méliès purchased the legendary Théâtre Robert-Houdin in 1888, where he perfected his craft. In time, it would also be at The Théâtre Robert-Houdin where Méliès would first screen his films as part of the program. Initially, Méliès was burdened with the task of having to build his own movie camera from scratch when the Lumière brothers -- Auguste and Louis -- refused to sell one of their Cinématographes to him. This was, perhaps, for the best as Méliès refined the camera's construction to meet his own needs. Although Méliès saw the potential the camera offered for providing entertainment through films, it wasn't until he was in the process of filming his short subject Place de l'Opéra (1896), that he accidentally discovered his first special effects trick with the new invention. From here on end, Méliès' imagination sored with the possibilities of merging magical theatrics, new camera tricks, and storytelling to create wondrous and fantastic movie presentations for the masses. Such love and devotion for the new art form is evident with the impressive number of movies Méliès, himself, produced, directed, edited, and acted in from 1896-1813... he even constructed and painted his own sets! Listed below are his films from 1901-1906 -- by year and alphabetical order -- from a time when Méliès was at his peak creatively and financially as a filmmaker. Not only did the pioneer of cinema deliver the most fascinating and highest of quality productions of his time, he did it with style and flare like no other.

List of Georges Méliès Films: Part 1, 1896-1900

The great Georges Méliès produced well over 548 shorts (actual number is unknown) from 1886 to 1913, the first being Une Partie de Cartes. Realizing that the camera could be utilized as a unique tool to create theatrical illusions that could amaze, shock, and even generate laughs from the spectating audience, the former stage magician filmed and projected his own "moving pictures." Today, he is regarded as "The Father of Special Effects," having been the first to render trick visual effects by means of stop-motion photography. The story goes that, while filming Place de l'Opéra (1896), Méliès' camera jammed and by the time he fixed the problem and resumed filming, the men that were in the original shot were now replaced by women! And where once stood a bus, a hearse appeared in it's place giving the illusion that the men and the bus were magically transformed! The French filmmaker first (intentionally) used this stop-motion trick in the film Escamotage d'une Dame au Théâtre Robert Houdin (1896). Among the many achievements Georges Méliès is noted for is that he was the first to employ techniques such as the fade-in, the fade-out, and the dissolve to create the first real narrative films; built the first film studio in Europe; created the first biblical, fantasy, horror, sci-fi, and erotic stag films; and was the first to appropriate production sketches and storyboards. Although most of his films are still lost (or thought destroyed), many are still resurfacing and are becoming once again available for the viewing pleasure of a new generation. Down below I've listed the films of Georges Méliès alphabetically and by year.
