In the film “The Case of Dreyfus”, one can notice the desire of Georges Méliès for realism and documentary. So the scene “Dreyfus is sent from the lyceum to prison” was taken from a photograph printed in “Ilustrasion”, and the scenes “Devil's Island” and “Military Tribunal” resemble color reproductions printed in “Petty journal of illustre”  . To comply with the style of this chronicle, Méliès even allows actors to approach the camera (this is almost the only film where actors are allowed to do this).
