The Over-Incubated Baby (1901)

Great short film directed by illusionist-turned-filmmaker Walter R. Booth and produced by Robert W. Paul. A mother brings her baby to Professor Bakem's newly invented baby incubator, which claims to give one year's worth of infant growth in just one hour. However, things go a little awry for this customer, after a spillage and resulting fire cause the device to overheat while her baby is inside. When the “child” eventually emerges, the mother is met with a distressing surprise.
