Silent Films: Jumbo the Elephant

I was immediately drawn to this video because of the elephant. I really love elephants. I thought it was kind of humorous because of how staged it looks. You can tell the backdrop is painted and is supposed to add some sort of mystical effect to the performance. Also this seems like an act you’d see in a circus, not really in a film. And even though there is no sound you can imagine some sort of light, upbeat tune playing in the background. The whole film has a sort of silly and playful tune.
