Some women do some belly-dancing. The only thing of real interest here is behind-the-scenes. This is the first film I’ve watched that has William Heise as solo director; he was typically credited only as co-director with William K.L. Dickson. In 1895, however, Dickson began to feel that he wasn’t getting sufficient credit for all these so called “Edison Films” that he was typically responsible for actually filming. By 1896, he would leave the Edison film company entirely to start his own film studio, but perhaps tensions were responsible for Heise already getting more responsibility starting in 1895. 0 stars.
tl;dr – behind-the-scenes drama was responsible for one of William Heise’s first solo films, but that’s the most interesting thing about this one. 0 stars.
