Aunt Sallie's Wonderful Bustle (1901)

*** (out of 4)

Aunt Sallie is standing with a gentleman when a gust of wind comes along and blows her bonnet off her head. She decides to follow it but this is where the fun starts. This Edison short is another trick film in the same vein as something we'd expect from Melies. The special effects here aren't really that special but I did get a kick out of what happened after the fall. You expect a certain thing to happen but it never does and instead we get a joke that really comes out of no where. The film runs just under a minute so there's not much story wise but what's here is pretty good.
