  1. Richard Tines's rating of the film The Golden Beetle

    (seeds of cinema) lovely early use of color and visual effects, this short is apparently often misattributed to Melies...p.s. not sure totally what's going on here, but i like it!

  2. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film The Golden Beetle

  3. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Golden Beetle

    Lovely early use of color distinguishes this otherwise nonsensical Pathé short about a magician who turns a beetle into a magical creature. The flat, static cinematography is typical of its time, but the visual effects are pretty impressive, and the color, which was painted onto each frame by hand, is dazzling.
