1. The Cook in Trouble - A trick film from Georges Méliès, much less ambitious in scope than his epics of the previous two years, with only one set (albeit a lovely one) and no real narrative to speak of.  It's more a fun diversion than anything revolutionary.  A cook is mean to a beggar asking for food.  The beggar is a wizard in disguise who curses the cook, inflicting him with demons that terrorize him, jumping in and out of his pots and crawling out of his oven in a devilish swirl of stop action photographic effects.
