Fun Size Review: Princess Nicotine; or, The Smoke Fairy (1909)

A delightfully weird trick film about a man who wants to smoke and the little fairy who is determined to ruin this activity for him. A very young Gladys Hulette stars as the mischievous fairy and she is as irresistible as ever.

This short is an absolute gem of zany humor and classic special effects. A must-see.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The bratty fairy is defeated by a seltzer bottle.

Read my full-length review here. I discuss the hows of the special effects extensively, if you’re into that sort of thing.

If it were a dessert it would be: Pink Lemonade Miniature Ice Cream Sandwiches. Just a tiny dab of happiness.

Availability: Released on DVD.
