Rosalie Moves In
When she moves into her new flat, Rosalie gets busy. She planes the floor as she scrubs it, until it becomes too thin to support her bulky weight. She pounds huge metal nails into the walls in an effort to hang up her pictures and, to the horror of her neighbours, ends up directly in their flats. Rosalie ploughs on at great speed in slapstick style until everything collapses and shatters the bourgeois order.
With Sarah Duhamel
Sarah Duhamel (1873-1926) made her stage debut as a child at the Théâtre Lafayette and made a career in the theatre in Paris. In 1908 she moved into film, where she shot films with Louis Feuillade for Gaumont. From 1911, she soon became a star under Roméo Bosetti at the Pathé Comica film studio in Nice, which produced the popular Rosalie comedies. From 1912 she made over 20 short films at Éclair playing the role of Pétronille; the series stopped in 1916. It wasn’t until 1922 that Duhamel appeared on screen again in a supporting role.
