The Window Dresser’s Dream

Released in July 1917, The Window Dresser’s Dream is a one-reel Black Diamond Comedy filmed and produced by the United States Motion Picture Corporation (USMPC) in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The film was distributed by Paramount Pictures.

An advertisement for the film that appeared in the July 14, 1917 issue of The Moving Picture World says “What could be more natural than for a window dresser to dream that one of his models had come to life–and oh, boy–but seeing is believing. It’s marvelous what a little trick photography will do.”
