An 1898 British short silent drama film featuring Santa Claus visiting a house on Christmas Eve, which is believed to be the cinema’s earliest known example of parallel action.
The twist of the light switch brings the black curtain of night in which a vision of Santa Claus arises like an iris. Beautiful.
Interesting as an historical piece. I'm curious why they didn't choose to re-shoot the scene when the figurine fell from the stocking, bothered me a bit.
Superimposition is all you will need in the end
