Pathe's Elixir of Dreams was welcomed by a film critic of the time as a relief from the usual "mordacity" of the French studio's product. A comedy-fantasy, the story concerns a scientist who creates a serum that will induce bizarre dreams. The fact that this wonder drug may well be a narcotic didn't seem to disturb the correspondent! At any rate, all sorts of fantastic special effects parade across the screen before the partaker of the elixir finally awakens. Apparently, the acting in Elixir of Dreams was well-below the standards set by the camerawork.
