I seem to have a love of dancing skeletons, as evidenced here and here.
I just revisited on of my favorite antique film clips: Le Squelette Joyeux, by Auguste & Louis Lumière (1895).
He’s got some nice moves.

Haha! Most fun with missing limbs, ever!
So true. Most people are nowhere near as gleeful when body parts fall off.
I LOVE THIS! I’ve never stumbled upon this one so it was quite the treat! I love to see humor from long ago. What a delightful little skeleton jig
Yes, the makers of this film really understood us…in 1895.
The sound track is great, I wonder if it’s the original one?
I found a number of different soundtracks. Some people just overdubbed modern ambient music and such…which felt entirely wrong. THIS is the soundtrack as far as I’m concerned.
