Allison Crowe, voice and piano, along with Dave Baird, bass, and Laurent Boucher, percussion meet up with a classic of the silent film era - from Georges Méliès.

"Skeletons and Spirits" as heard on Allison Crowe's "This Little Bird" album/CD:

This song recording is presented together with "The Haunted Castle", (Le Manoir du diable), an 1896 film from cinema pioneer Georges Méliès. The French magician, film director and theatre proprietor -- boundlessly imaginative and inventive -- is inspiration for the 2011 Martin Scorsese movie, "Hugo", and, naturally, its source - Brian Selznick's novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret".

You'll find the original version of this - and other delightful films by masters of the silent era -- online.
