    Edwin Stanton Porter's adaptation of a popular comic from that era. We are introduced to the fiend shoveling down Welsh Rarebit from a giant vat. He becomes intoxicated and stumbles home and into bed where he has a bizarre, Rarebit induced dream which involves his bed flying away from him. It's a fantastic trick shot film. For its time, its astounding what Porter was able to do, from the flying bed, to the furniture running away from him. True, there isn't much of a narrative here, its just an excuse for special effects, but its effective. Porter was a true innovator and this as a fine example of his skill at trick photography. It had me smiling the entire time, and amazed at what he was able to accomplish. 13 years 10 months ago
