|Plot||The artist is presented, with his board: his only appearance. The hand rapidly outlines a human head, into the chalky jaws of which it inserts a cigarette. The chalk head smokes, and finally eats, the cigarette. The head of a woman is drawn, which gradually fills and becomes undoubtedly human. Eyes of feminine longing are turned in the direction of a chalk-outlined teapot, which materializes into the real thing, from the spout of which the woman-head drinks with satisfaction. The woman's head resumes its chalky outline, and disappears, feature by feature. The hand of the artist cuts out of paper the figure of a Pierrot. This is placed inside a magic ring drawn on the blackboard. The paper clown changes into a real, embodied Pierrot, who dances, juggles with hoops, and finally dissolves by a rapid catherine-wheel movement into a vivacious head. Head, life size, of the Pierrot. Smoke is seen to issue from the mouth, and comical facial expressions are produced. Again the wheel movement, and the clown disappears. The head of a man is now drawn in chalk. This gradually assumes life and gesticulates in a marvelous manner. The head is seen to split from crown to chin, the halves fall apart, as if hinged, and from the eyes are drawn numberless yards of fine tape. From inside the two halves of the head are produced champagne and liquor in bottles, cigars, cigarettes and glasses. The halves of the head are rejoined, life and comic gesticulations again occur, and the hand of the artist wipes the whole from the blackboard, section by section, though muscular action remains even in the last portion left, one eye which winks at the audience in an impudent manner before being finally wiped out.... search for Comedy Cartoons on IMDb|
