This impressive trick film was made for Pathé by Segundo de Chomon. Works dealing with the netherworld and the supernatural were much in vogue at the time. The color was hand-screened on to each print by Pathé's superb stencil process, introduced in 1904 and used throughout the silent film era. The original print from which this copy is reproduced was rescued for $25 from a junkyard in Guanajuato, Mexico.
