Dancing Pig, French Silent Film from 1907

Here’s an old French silent film from 1907, titled Dancing Pig. A pig puts on fancy clothes and tries to beg for food, only to have his clothes removed — and then the dancing starts. It’s a strangely childish and super creepy at the same time, especially towards the end when we see the pig’s long tongue and sharp teeth. Very odd, but that’s a great pig costume!
