The Coronation of Edward VII (1902)


How does this film Le couronnement du roi Édouard VII (1902) relate to the other film The Coronation of Edward VII (1902) also directed by Méliès? Are these the same film, or different versions from the same source material, or completely different films?

reply

Melies made it as a film in France using lookalikes because he was not allowed into the Abbey, as the camera was considered too loud.

The man chosen to represent the King was a French lavatory attendance, chosen because his build and beard were so similar to the King's.
