FILM: The Enchanted Cottage - Opening Scene Matte Composites/Optical Zooms

This expository sequence, from just past 0:02:00 into the feature, incorporates two key matte paintings of The Enchanted Cottage at 0:52 and 2:05. Both static images are made to seem dynamic through the liberal use of optical zooms.

from The Enchanted Cottage (1945)
Creator: John Cromwell
