This DVD-R collection of Méliès films, originally released on VHS videotape in 1998, has been mastered from 16mm reduction prints. Some prints, such as A Trip to the Moon (above), are quite dark.

The program features organ musical accompaniment performed by Bob Vaughn.

Compared to other Méliès discs out there, this one is rough going. Not recommended.
