Le Cochon Danseur (Dancing Pig), 1907
Le Cochon Danseur (Dancing Pig), 1907, described by IMDB thusly: "A pig dressed in fancy clothes flirts with a pretty girl, but she humiliates him and tears off his suit; she then makes him dance for her affections."
Thanks to esteemed Congress of Curious Peoples participant Simon Werrett for introducing me to this fascinating piece of cinematic history with a decidedly early Coney Island bent!
From the DVD Saved From The Flames - 54 Rare and Restored Films 1896 - 1944; more on that here.
