“Comedy was the leading genre in early cinematographic fiction. Alice Guy’s show many variations on this theme. Through the use of makeup (La vérité sur l’homme singe, 1906), decoration (Le frotteur, 1907), special effects (Chirurgie fin de siècle, 1900), chases (Les cambrioleurs, 1898; La course à la saucisse, 1907), these films prefigure the burlesque films of 1910 to 1920. Le billet de banque (1907) was an even more astonishing forerunner of the early Charlie Chaplin films.”
