King of Dollars

Le roi des dollars

Directed by Segundo de Chomón
France, 1905
Short, Silent


One of Chomón’s earliest films, The King of Dollars (1905), makes the link to stage magic clear. It shows a disembodied hand performing coin tricks, enhanced by simple editing techniques that would have still been unfamiliar to audiences.
