Boireau en voyage

FR 1913. PC: Pathé Frères. D: André Deed. Starring André Deed (Boireau). B. 5708. 107 m /16 fps/ 6'. Good AFF print. ♪ Donald Sosin. Friday 8 July 2005, Cinéma Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Following Bulletin Pathé: Boireau with four large suitcases enters a hotel that is fully booked. He tries to enter into a room anyway, but there are two lovers there. He ends up down the stairs, knocks down the hotel bellboy, falls on the road, passes from hand to hand and finally lands in the water of a drain and falls asleep. – Wild slapstick, physically extremely demanding stunts. In his final tryst in the drain under the bridge Boireau makes his bed with a suitcase and a blanket.
