Description

At over three minutes, The Astronomer's Dream is three times longer than a typical early Georges Méliès' short, and has duly been given three entries in his Star Film catalogue (presumably this meant he could charge triple the fee). It begins as a virtual remake of A Nightmare (Le Cauchemar, 1896), but it's conceived on a far more elaborate scale.
