One of the first religious-themed films by Méliès, about the pious St. Anthony who is tormented by visions of seductive women while reading in his cave.
The Temptation Of Saint Anthony (1898)
(Original) La tentation de Saint-Antoine
I found this early trick film by Melies quite a fascinating early production. It is one scene only, but very effective usage of the scene and the one minute the film lasts. St. Anthony is tempted by women while reading and in prayer, and even Jesus is the cross is turned into a temptress. In the end, an angel appears and everything turns back to normal showing us that Anthony overcame the temptation.
