Méliès, Georges


Méliès, Georges
(Marie Georges Jean Méliès / December 8, 1861, Paris, France - January 21, 1938, Paris)
   The son of a wealthy footwear manufacturer, he enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and completed his studies of art in London, where he also became involved in conjuring. Having returned to Paris, he briefly worked with his father but spent most of his time creating automatons. He earned a living as a caricaturist under the pseudonym of Geo Smile. In 1888, he bought back the Robert Houdin Theatre, where he gave performances as an illusionist (Cendrillon; La Poudre de Perlimpimpin; Michel Strogoff; Les Pilules du Diable; Le Tour du Monde en 80 Jours; Robinson Crusoe; Les Mille et une Nuits). In December 1895, he was at one of the first showings of the Lumière Cinematographe at the Grand Café and offered 100, 000 francs to Louis Lumière in return for the projector / camera. Unfortunately, Lumière declined his proposal. Thanks to British film pioneer Robert William Paul, he managed to get a Bioscop projector. Then he founded his production company, Star Film. In 1897, he built the first French studio in Montreuil. For a dozen years, he was a successful producer and director, but the evolution of the cin­ematographic business was unfavorable to him, and after several commercial failures, he went bankrupt. In 1926, he married the star of several of his films, Jeanne d'Alcy (1865-1956), who ran a toy store at the Montparnasse railway station. In the late 1920s, journalists and film historians brought him and his work out of oblivion. In 1931, Louis Lumière pre­sented him the Legion of Honor Medal. His autobiog­raphy, Mes Mémoires, written in 1937, was published first in the Italian review Cinema and then in French as an annex to the book Georges Méliès, Mage (Mau­rice Bessy, Lo Duca, Editions Prisma, Paris, 1945). He appeared in Jacques-Bernard Brunius's short Violon d'Ingres (1939). In 1988, several of his movies were re­made and gathered under the title Méliès 88 (shorts, episode "Rêve d'Artiste", Pierre Etaix; Les Sept Péchés capitaux, Philippe Gautier; Le Topologue, Marc Caro; Le Rêve du Radja, Jean-Louis Bertucelli; Le Duel, Zbigniew Rybczynski; Le Cauchemar d'un Inventeur, Maurizio Nichetti; Gulliver, Jean-Pierre Mocky).
