100 years ago this month, in October, 1917,. Paramount released "The Aeroplane Machine Gun," which described the interrupter gear which allowed a machine gun to fire through the arc of an airplane's propeller.  Animation pioneer John R Bray produced the film and JF Leventhal was the animator.  Note that the airplane in the illustration has a machine gun mounted on the top wing.
