The film was shown to an audience who believed the actor expressed different emotions with each situation, when in fact, the footage of Mosjoukine was the same shot repeated over and over again. Even though, Mosjoukine did not see the shots, and hence, could not react to either of them, the viewers were convinced to witness the adequate emotions. Thus, the viewer filled in the blanks and saw the expression, although there was none. The impact of this experiment was called the Kuleshov effect. It illustrates the significance of film editing as well as the importance of the viewer.
