"Satan S'amuse," Segunda de Chomon, 1907


From Wikipedia's description of this short film: "In an unnamed place, Satan is bored. Despite his servants' exertions, nothing can be found to cheer him up."

Watch a morose Satan reject all attempts at amusement above; worth a peek for--if nothing else!--the wonderful early 20th Century sets and costumes.
