1908 - Excursion to the Moon

Tricked! By an inferior copy!  I watched this film thinking it was the Méliès classic, and was mightily confused when the spaceship avoided the moon's eye and went straight into its mouth.

It turns out someone at Pathé made a complete ripoff of the original. And it wasn't as good - the hand colouring was exciting until I saw how much better the colouring was 6 years earlier.

So, I guess what I watched is my first ripoff remake. I'll watch the real one next, I guess. The difference in quality should make it look AMAZING.
