Le frotteur - 1907

Country: France
Director: Alice Guy
Genres: Short
Also known as: The Cleaning Man
Production Co: Société des Etablissements L. Gaumont
Some nutty guy comes to an apartment and asks if he can earn money cleaning the floors. The owner agrees and lickety-split, the nutter begins tossing about the furniture and breaking things. The neighbors below are appalled--as their ceiling is shaking and falling down on them due to the cleaner's antics. Soon the cops arrive to find that the floor is so slick that everyone keeps slipping and sliding--so much that they end up crashing into the apartment below! Crazy stuff--and a lot of fun to watch.
