Georges Melies Encore: New Discoveries - 26 Rare and Original Films by the First Wizard of Cinema (1896-1911) DVD9
The box set Georges Melies: First Wizard of the Cinema (1896–1913) contained five DVDs and 173 films (out of 197 officially found). However, an empty space remained. Finally, here is the sixth DVD with new discoveries.
An additional 26 films produced by Melies between 1896 and 1911 have been found and made available for this single-disc, supplemental collection. They further support that Melies was the most accomplished filmmaker in the world during the first years of cinema. The films collected here are presented as in the earlier set, in chronological order with excellent new music. Although the print quality is variable, most look very nice; five boast beautiful, original hand-coloring, while another five have original English narrations written by Melies. Two are fragments, as the complete films are lost.
As a bonus, this collection also includes two films in the Melies style by Segundo de Chomon, which for many years were misidentified as Georges Melies’ own work.

Titles included are:

Post No Bills
The Haunted Castle
An Hallucinated Alchemist
On The Roof
The Last Cartridges
Sea Fighting In Greece
Off to Bloomingdale Asylum
The Prolific Magical Egg
Eruption of Mount Pele
Robinson Crusoe (Fragment)
