The Electric Hotel

Segundo de Chomón | 1908 | ★★★★
A couple checks into a fully automated hotel, in which – as if by magic, powered by the unseen forces of electricity – all their needs are met. Unpacking and undressing, shaving and primping, all are met with consummate ease. That is, until a drunken buffoon flips a wrong switch or two, sending their room into chaos, in this exquisitely crafted trick film.
