Description

Part of the American Mutoscope & Biograph Co series of Living Pictures, where they on a simple black backdrop made the tableaux come to life depicting the scene. In this film (in one place the length is said to be 30 feet, in another 150 feet) the popular scene of St. Anthony being tempted by a temptress while praying is shown, with the temptress being in a full naked bodysuit, so borderline erotica. In this film, when Anthony reaches out for the young woman, she turns into a skeleton.
