Le lit à roulettes -1907

Country: France
Director: Alice Guy
Also known as: The Rolling Bed
Genres: Short
Production Co: Société des Etablissements L. Gaumont
It can be noticed that quite a few films that were apparently directed by Alice Guy (at least according to a DVD released by Kino) are listed on IMDb as having been directed by Louis Feuillade. This film is one of these seemingly misidentified films.
It appears that a guy has been thrown out of his apartment. So, he rolls his bed onto the street and tries to sleep. However, the crowd of people who see him shove the bed down a flight of steps and it begins rolling all over town. It's all very slapstick and is quite similar to some of the Keystone films in America.
