Hi, the “Voyage dans la lune” available at Archive.org isn’t the complete version. The complete version has 14 minuts, that one has 11/ almost 12 minutes. I know because I download, watch it again (for the 10th time maybe :) ) and uploaded at google video. Something was missed in the middle. BTW, thanks for the link. :)

Indeed. The post wasn’t up for more than 10 minutes! She is quick. Seems all the versions I can find online also clock in at 00:11:48. So we’ll just have to use our imagination for those middle minutes. ah well.
