Friday Five: 1880s Film

Friday Five

FIVE FILMS OF THE 1880s

Five films even older than me...

#5. Cockatoo - stop-motion photography by Eadweard Muybridge (1887)

#4. Pferd und Reiter Springen über ein Hindernis [Horse and Rider Jump Over a Barrier] - Ottomar Anschütz (1888)

#3. Hyde Park Corner - William Friese-Greene (1889)

#2. Monkey Shines No. 1 - William Heise and William K. L. Dickson (1889)

#1. Roundhay Garden Scene - Louis Le Prince (1888)

Le Prince shot the world's first known film, Man Walking Around a Corner, in 1887. Read more about the man, his inventions - and his mysterious disappearance! - in a post I prepared earlier.
