Segundo de Chomon

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1929 of Spanish film director Segundo de Chomón. Weird Wild Realm has an overview of his career. His works, at least most of them, must be in the public domain now, but I'm having trouble finding much online.

UbuWeb has an anthology of selected works:

It includes The Cigar Box; Bob's Electric Theatre (there's fencing in that one, about 13 minutes into the video); Down in the Deep, or The Pearl Fisherman; Nicholas and Tonto and La Valse des Asiattes; Modern Sculptors; Satan at Play; The Electric Hotel; Les Lunatiques; The Hen That Laid the Golden Eggs.

Youtube has Les Kiriki online:

has Voyage à la planète Jupiter (1907) and Excursion en la Luna (1908).
