“Porter was an engineer and cameraman who adapted the brilliant trickery of French filmmakers such as Georges Méliès to American pictures. This was an imitation of "Reve a la Lune" (Pathe, 1905). To see how quickly technique advanced in the silent days, look at When the Clouds Roll By.—Kevin Brownlow
