Boireau a mangé de l'ail

FR 1908. PC: Pathé Frères. Starring André Deed (Boireau). 123 m /16 fps/ 7'. Cin. fr. ♪ Donald Sosin. Monday 4 July 2005, Cinema Lumière 1, Il Cinema Ritrovato, Bologna. Having eaten garlic Boireau wreaks havoc with his breath felling a dog, a caretaker, a window cleaner at the top of a ladder, and a newspapeer seller. With his breath he fells the passengers of the subway car, defeats two crooks and two policemen, has a horse gallop backwards and a dog run backwards. Finally, even his own walking stick, his hat, and his mirror image escape his garlic breath.
