Wedding Feast and Ghosts (1909)aka Nozze in casa Scivoloni Country: ItalyCompany: CinesFantastic content: "Ghosts" chase wedding guests...fake ghosts are better than no
ghosts at all for my project, and, in my heart, I'd love to see each and
every one of these obscurities.

Bobby at the Chemist's (1912)Country: UKCompany: GaumontFantastic content: People have strange reactions to a chemist's concoctions.Commentary:
One person takes a drink that makes her spin around in circles.
Another takes nitroglycerin and explodes. Walt Lee consigns this title
to the Problems category, which I take it to mean that the descriptions
don't tell him enough about whether the content is really fantastic
enough. Or maybe he's not sure of the movie's existence; despite
listings in both the Willis and Lee guides, it's not listed on either
IMDB or CITWF that I know of.
Bob's Nightmare (1912)Country: USACompany: MonoFantastic content: Possible ghosts; a giant knife cuts off a head.Commentary:
The giant knife would put this in the realm of horror; as for the
possible ghosts, all the Willis guide mentions is mysterious people in
white, so it's somewhat ambiguous. I don't think Bob is the same Bobby
who went to the chemist in the previous entry; if it is, he shouldn't
have drank the concoction he got.

todmichel wrote:I have no idea if BHAKTA-PRALHAD (India, 1934) still exists, but it can
interest you to know that two "language" versions were produced
simultaneously by Saraswati Cinetone, one in Hindi (directed by K.P.
Bhave), the other in Marathi (directed by R.G. Torney).

Dave Sindelar wrote:Bottled Up (1909)Country: FranceCompany: PatheFantastic content: Chemist uses concoction that liquifies people so he can put them in bottles.Commentary: And I thought it was bad being pigeonholed; that sounds pleasant next to being liquified and then bottled. Just as long as they don't hand the bottles out to Fricot; if he'd drink horse embrocation, he'd drink anything. There's no listing on IMDB for this one.
Breakdown of the Aeromobiles (1915)aka La paura degli aeromobiliDirected by Andre DeedFeaturing Andre Deed, Leonie Laporte, Domenico GambinoCountry: ItalyCompany: ItalaCommentary:
I don't know about you, but the word "aeromobile" conjures up an image
of a flying car. Still, I could be wrong; I noticed one of the
alternate titles of this one uses the word "zeppelin", which just might
alter the fantastic content of the title.
