Gertie on Tour (1921)

This fragment transports McCay’s signature creation, the dinosaur Gertie, into modern times as she interacts with a trolley.

And then suddenly (since the film is a fragment and so doesn’t make a ton of narrative sense, which actually lends it a strange, ethereal momentum), she’s dancing with a huge audience of fellow dinosaurs. It’s a hypnotic image that makes the whole experience.
