Georges Méliès: The Temptation of Saint Anthony (1898) - Classic Film

Classic silent film by the legendary Georges Méliès. The Last Temptation of Saint Anthony (La Tentation de Saint Antoine) is a silent film adaptation of the 1874 book by Gustave Flaubert.

In his cave, the hermit Saint Anthony prays before an effigy of the crucified Christ. A scantily-clad woman suddenly appears, and St Anthony shields his eyes from the sight of temptation. She vanishes, and he recommences reading the Bible. Two women appear either side of him, and he recoils in horror. They vanish, and he picks up a skull from the base of the cross. However, when he kisses it, it turns into another woman, with two more appearing in quick succession. They dance in a ring around the tormented Saint Anthony before vanishing. A desperate Saint Anthony kneels before Christ, who turns into another woman. But an angel also appears, to which Saint Anthony turns with undisguised relief. The woman vanishes and Christ reappears.
