I suppose you could say that back in the day when one-reelers were the standard, most films were “short films”. After all, when you’re limited to around eight minutes per reel, you really have to make all of them count. So I thought that today we’d take a look at one of those. This silent is entitled “That Fatal Sneeze” and was directed by Lewin Fitzhamon. It’s the story of what happens when a boy decides to get revenge on an older man who pranks him with sneezing powder. This particular version comes with a live soundtrack preformed by Simon Jones on piano, Phil Morton on can and guitar, and Adam Webster on cello as part of BBC Radio Merseyside’s Unsilent Night.
