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: http://music.allisoncrowe.com/track/skeletons-and-spirits

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.
