The gentleman notices that the photographer, under a black cloak, is about to take it off. He tells him to leave, comes closer and closer, gesturing and screaming, until finally his head and then his mouth occupy the entire screen. He opens his mouth and the apparatus disappears in him, and the photographer himself follows him. He leaves, chewing.
This film is one of the first examples of the dramatic use of the movement of the character from the depths of the frame to the viewer.  .
