Playing Cards

Partie de cartes (Card Party)

Directed by Leopoldo Fregoli
France, 1896
Short, Silent


Scenes of people playing cards had been part of the principal stock-in-trade of “genre painting” since its inception, so it was only natural that it become the subject of numerous early short films, including this rendition of the classic slice of life, with the frames colored by hand.
