Fernand Léger feels a huge interest about movie making since 1916 during a free time between the world war one battles and understand quickly the importance of such discovery on art. He involves himself a lot on differents ways like posters and sets making, directing, producing and acting. In 1924 Fernand Léger films his first short names "Ballet Mécanique" with the help of Man Ray and Dudley Murphy supported by the Georges Antheil music. This movie without any script owns some dadaïsts and cubists pictures in a speed editing way showing us the painter daily tools. Kiki de Montparnasse a famous people of the French vanguard performs as main actress. Léger follows his work when he makes the poster of the Abel Gance picture "La roue" (1923) and the sets the Marcel L'Herbier "L'inhumaine" movie the same year let his mind playing with geometry. After the second world war Fernand Léger will give his opinion about USA in "Léger en Amérique" (1946) and will participate to his last two movies. With Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder he gives his contribution to the Hans Richter movie "Dreams that money can buy" (1947) some short stories directed by Richter himself. The movie will be projected in the Mostra of Venice and the success arouses Léger to film his second short after "Ballet mécanique" but with a script and dialogs unlike in 1924. The story deals with a love story between a woman and a man perfoming by mannequins. Léger throws away the scenes where his assistants puts wardrobes on these mannequins and the music composed by John La Touche singing by Libby Holeman and John White can be used with the framing for giving to the mannequin a human soul.
