The Wrong Door (1904)

I think it is safe to say that this garnered one of the biggest laughs at the 2003 or 2005 Slapsticon (I forget which). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL0HGJ9fdzo

Unfortunately slo-moed to a comedy killing speed, I recommend speeding it up a bit before you watch it.

I think it was Slapsticon 2006, and it was a big hit when I ran it in my show at Cinecon too.

So the guy playing the rube is Gaston Breteau? That finally puts a name to a familiar face in many early Pathe' and Melies films (he's the face of the moon in Melies' A TRIP TO THE MOON)
