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 of growth in just one hour. Evidently working by heat, a spillage and resulting fire cause the device to overheat and when the baby eventually comes out, the mother is met with a distressing surprise.
