Baron Munchausen's Dream (French: Les Aventures de baron de Munchhausen, literally The Adventures of Baron Munchausen) is a French film released in November 1911 based on a book by Gottfried August Bürger. It was one of the last films from early 20th century French filmmaker Georges Méliès. While other filmmakers in the early 1910s were moving into new technical areas of filmmaking, Baron Munchausen's Dream exhibits the same styles and processes Méliès had been using in the 1890s.


After an evening of entertaining guests, an intoxicated Baron Munchausen goes to sleep only to experience a variety of disturbing and otherworldly dreams.
