"The Devil and the Statue" ("Le diable géant ou Le miracle de la madonne") is a variation on a theme established by "The Man with the Rubber Head" ("LHomme à la tête en caoutchouc"), in that once again the narrative is essentially an excuse for a living creature to appear to grow to gigantic size, by dint of superimposing a shot with the camera tracking in over a shot of a static room. (In this case, the joins are more obvious, and the floor on which the expanding and contracting devil is standing is all too visible).
