Escamotage d'une dame au théâtre Robert Houdin (also known as The Conjuring of a Woman at the House of Robert Houdin or The Vanishing Lady) is an 1896 French short black-and-white silent directed by French magician Georges Méliès. It is number 70 on the Star Films catalog.

Synopsis

Georges Méliès walks onto a stage and brings out his assistant Jeanne d'Alcy. He spreads a newspaper out on the floor and places a chair on top of it. He then has Jeanne sit in the chair and spreads a blanket over her. When he removes the blanket, she has disappeared. He then waves his arms in the air and conjures up a skeleton. He places the blanket over the skeleton and removes it to reveal Jeanne, alive and well.
