Short: The Conjuring of a Woman at the House of Robert Houdin (1896)

Also known as The Vanishing LadyThe Conjuring of a Woman at the House of Robert Houdin is a short film by Georges Méliès.  Given its short length, it’s a little thin on plot.  It’s also ostensibly a horror movie, which confirms that some of the earliest films ever had horror themes.  Imagine how much some people’s socks were knocked off by these early special effects!
