The Impossible Voyage

(1904)

20 minutes

Adventure / Comedy / Fantasy / Silent

Directed by Georges Méliès 

A geographic society proposes a voyage around the world using a variety of vehicles, including a submarine, an automobile, and a large railway box car filled with ice. The machines are loaded onto a train and sent to the Swiss Alps, where the group of travelers will begin their journey. They first board an automobile dubbed 'The Impossible Carriage' and travel through the mountains, only to crash and get rushed to the hospital. After they recover, they board a train with their vehicles, and continue to journey up a mountain top. As they get higher and higher , with balloons attached to the train, they drift into space and are "swallowed" by the sun. As they land with a crash, each of the travelers is happy to be alive, but the heat is too much to handle and all but one of them is loaded into an ice box, but they are suddenly frozen. The remaining traveler starts a fire in order to melt the ice, and transfers the individuals to a submarine. The submarine is then launched off the sun, and falls into an ocean, when a boiler problem causes the submarine to explode.  The travelers are thrown up into the air, and fall back onto land. A grand rejoicing is held for the individuals.
