Living Marble (1910)
6min · Short, Comedy · 1 January 1910
Four gentlemen are talking in a beer-garden; during a short absence of one of them, who pretends to be an art lover, the others decide to make a prank on him. When he comes back, one them invites the "square" bourgeois to his home, pretexting to show him an art catalog. The men pay their drinks and leave, but the three friends convene later, and they have paid a young female model to be there, too. The three pals position the nude girl in a classic stance, standing on a pedestal covered with a white bed-shit. She has an headdress that hides her hair, and is painted white like marble. The men spend some time touching parts of her body, to achieve the best pose. All except one hide in the house, and when the "square" man arrives, the owner of the house arranges for the visitor to stay alone, reading a catalog. When he lifts the eyes from the catalog, he is in awe at the girl's beauty. [At the same, by design or a goof, the new symbol of Saturn-Film that was part of the wall decoration, falls to the floor.] The man feels hot, cleans his eye-glasses, makes sure no one is behind the closed doors, closes a window, takes off his toupee, drinks a glass of wine, and another - and finally dares to touch the nude statue. Immediately, the statue comes alive, and jumps down to the floor. The man is a bit nervous, and his chuckling friends appear a little later and explain their joke.
