This approximately 40-second long Lumiere Brothers short (Lumiere No. 105) details frequent Lumiere collaborator Félicien Trewey performing a variation on his famed "chapeaugraphy". Here, sitting in a chair, he dons hats, fake facial hair and even facial prosthetics in fast succession to perform characters for a several seconds before moving on to the next.While in terms of visual composition Transformation by Hats is not much to talk about, the short is notable and very successful as a further Lumiere Brothers exploration of the fictional chances of film. Otherwise, the Lumieres were better known for their "actualities", or short documentary portraits.Trewey, who was responsible for bringing the Lumieres' cinématographe to England, more often executed his chapeaugraphy with a single huge piece of felt which he would shape into various kinds of hats to wear as various characters, relying also on facial expressions and contortions to result the change--something like John Barrymore's turn at Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920). Surely the shaping of felt into various kinds of hats would take more than 40 seconds, so here, Trewey depends on his fast change abilities instead, keeping his hats and accessories on the ground, out of the camera range.It's remarkable how quickly and "cleanly" Trewey can don every "disguise". Editing had not yet been exploited (even though edits are show in the earliest days of movie at least in some Edison company shorts), or surely the Lumieres would have capitalized on that special property of the fresh movie medium instead.Of course, it's debatable just how much the Lumieres intended to demonstrate the potential of the fresh medium rather than simply show a mate performing a part of his live act that had been adapted to suit the limitations of the medium. The truth is probably a mixture of intentions.At any rate, the result on the burgeoning movie industry was more to give a glimpse of the chances of characterization, to present a relatively simple technical method to make different convincing characters on film, as would be important in producing the more extensive fictions later to come.
Felcien Trewey, a mate of the Lumieres and a vaudeville performer, does a comedy routine involving changes of hats, wigs, beards and mustaches. This actor also appears in "Partie d'ecarte"(1895) with Antoine Lumiere and "The Photograph"(1895) with Auguste Lumiere. Since Lumiere, unlike the Edison company, filmed very several vaudeville routines, this is a special film.
This detail highlights a cute intelligent routine, with some funny moments. Unlike most Lumière films, it's really a filmed scene act, rather than material that made particular test of the cinematograph's unique abilities. But one another thing that films do is to let viewers to see talented performers without having to travel so far away to do so.The routine itself is cute good, and it has some details that are quite clever. In going through the "Transformation By Hats", the performer matches hats, facial features, and gestures to make in every situation a clearly defined personality. The different transformations come in fast succession, making the result even more impressive. There is also nice tons in the choice of effects.Though it does not have the technical innovation found in many Lumière films, this one is well worth seeing just for the entertainment value.
