The Countryman and the Cinematograph 1901

  • January 1, 1901
  • 1 mins
  • Robert W. Paul
  • English
  • Comedy

A satire on the way that audiences unaccustomed to the cinema didn't know how to react to the moving images on a screen - in this film, an unsophisticated (and stereotypical) country yokel is alternately baffled and terrified, in the latter case by the apparent approach of a steam train.
