MAGIC’S REALLY OLD FILM OF THE WEEK

or

MAGIC’S FAVOURITE COSTUME OF THE WEEK

or

YOU CAN PUT YOUR OWN SOUNDTRACK ON THIS ONE, FRIENDS:

Loie Fuller, dance sensation of the age (1899) filmed with one of those brand new film cameras, by the pioneering and aptly named Lumiere Brothers.

Hand coloured, frame-by-frame, some point in 1930.

Stunning, still, right now in today-time.
